Description of problem:
SPEC for perl 5.8.5 is missing compatibility links for 5.8.4 on the
post script and the build parameters.
this breaks the update of this package from a 5.8.4 based package
which is providing libperl.so, like vim-enhanced-6.3.014-1 (BUG 128535
and BUG 128524) and which are expecting libperl.so to be on the
corresponding architecture/version directory (ex:
as the dependency is decided as compile time and is specific to the
architecture/version used on the build machine, a different scheme
which uses a generic dependency name (Require: perl) and changes to
use a path agnostic libperl.so was suggested (might be tricky on multi
arch platforms though).
eventhough, as a workaround for backward compatibility is already
deployed on the current SPEC, a patch which fixes this using the
current approach is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora Core3 test 1 (AMD64, eventhough it is not arch specific)
2. update -u perl
Actual Results: /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.4/x86_64-linux-thread-multi is
Expected Results: package updated
Created attachment 102199 [details]
patch to perl.spec to add missing backward compatibility links for perl 5.8.4
adds 5.8.4 to the defined list on -Dinc_version_list and a link to the 5.8.4 on
the %install script
this should be fixed in 5.8.5-7
Looks good to me.
