perl-DBI compiled for Perl 5.8.0 instead of 5.8.1
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
Description of problem:
perl-DBI is compiled for 5.8.0, while the system has 5.8.1. So
Perl cannot find DBI.pm even though it is installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install both perl and perl-DBI RPMs
2. run perl -MDBI -e 1
perl cannot find DBI.pm in its include path.
perl -MDBI -e 1 should not print error.
run "rpm -ql perl-DBI|grep DBI.pm"
and "perl -V" and compare the Perl search path with
the directories where DBI.pm gets installed.
The same problem may be present in other Perl modules in RPM format
(at least perl-Time-HiRes is also installed into 5.8.0 dirs).
This is solved by newer Perl RPM (5.8.3-16) from updates. Sorry for
