Description Petr Pisar 2014-10-29 09:24:55 UTC
perl-Crypt-Random-1.25-20.fc22 fails to build in F22 because a test fails sometimes:

+ make test
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-MTest::Harness" "-e" "undef *Test::Harness::Switches; test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t
# Test 9 got: "0" (t/generator.t at line 26 fail #2)
#   Expected: "1"
#  t/generator.t line 26 is:     ok($x != $y, 1);
t/generator.t ........ 
Failed 1/18 subtests 

The test actually compares two random numbers and fails if the numbers are equalled. It's natural that you can sometimes get two same numbers from a random number generator. The test is faulty by design.
