Description jonathan_95060 2000-05-29 20:53:26 UTC
This is really a bug report for perl-Expect.pm-1.07-2.i386.rpm.  The WWW
page would not let me specify this component so I'm filing this against
perl-Mon to get your attention.

the Expect.pm "uses" IO::Pty but the Pty.pm is not included in the
powertools RPM.

I believe the module that is required is


I fetched the IO-Tty-0.02.tar.gz, built and installed it and then
the expect module worked fine.

Comment 3 Tim Powers 2000-07-17 18:47:42 UTC
It shouldn't be included in the same package as the perl-expect package since it
is a different module in CPAN. Keep in mind that the packages for CPAN are
auto-generated, so it won't suck in dependancies automagically. What you will
want to do is grab the perl-IO-Tty package from the CPAN packages which were
included in 6.2, look in the "extra-SRPMS" directory. The sources are in that
package. Just a FYI: the extra-SRPMS directory is for packages which are useful
to people but wouldn't build for us for whatever reason (messed up makefile,
missing libs on the system, whatever).
