Description Paul Sundling 2004-02-13 08:14:34 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core test 1 for x86-64 with default binaries has incompatible
version numbers on @INC

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.perl /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/File/Tail.pm
1a. /etc/rc.d/init.d/spamassassin start
Actual results:
Can't locate Time/HiRes.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.1/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1
/usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1 .) at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/File/Tail.pm line 21.

Expected results:
<no errors>

Additional info:
I first noticed a problem with spamassasson failing.  Then when I
installed pop-before-smtp, I encountered this error in a dependency.
Following are the directories on a fresh install:

The missing include directories are:

So perl needs to be recompiled with the missing directories.  A quick
fix for those not wanting to recompile is to merge the 5.8.0 and 5.8.1
directories in the two missing places and put a symbolic link from one
 to the other.  It's better to use mv instead of tar so that it's
obvious if there is an actual file for both versions.

try the perl 5.8.3 from rawhide; it's much better about directories
and include paths, multilib and otherwise
Comment 2 Paul Sundling 2004-02-17 17:36:39 EST
My concern isn't fixing it for myself, but making sure that the x86-64
version of the distribution works better "out of the box" for those
less technically skilled than me.  Granted, it might take another 5
months before that processor is mainstream.
