Description Robert Scheck 2004-09-25 10:23:23 UTC
Description of problem:
rpm 4.2.x of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 isn't able to handle 
%{perl_vendorlib} correct, but %{perl_sitearch} and %{perl_archlib}

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1a. Use "%{perl_vendorlib}" in a spec file
1b. Use "%{!?perl_vendorlib: %define perl_vendorlib %(eval "`%{__perl} -V:installvendorlib`"; echo $installvendorlib)}" 
    and "%{perl_vendorlib}" in a spec file
2. Build the RPM.
3. Try to install the RPM.
4. Die with: "/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 is needed by XYZ".
5. /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 exists, see:
   # file /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0
   /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0: directory
Actual results:
%{perl_vendorlib} isn't working.

Expected results:
Working %{perl_vendorlib}.

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2004-09-25 10:32:59 UTC
BTW, %{perl_vendorarch}, %{perl_sitelib} and %{perl_privlib} don't 
also work as expected.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-09-26 17:38:03 UTC
The fix for this is to upgrade RHEL3 to rpm-4.3.x, not otherwise.

The problem exists for any additional change to default rpm
configuration, exists for all versions of rpm prior to rpm-4.3,
not just RHEL3. You can add the macros to what was then the
rpm default configuration.
