Description Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-01-19 10:41:00 EST
I dont know much about perl but it seem that @INC should contain also
the 5.8.5 directory.

This cause the perl-XML-Parser package to not work correctly and so
it's not possible to build most GNOME packages on devel anymore.

perl -e "require XML::Parser"
Can't locate XML/Parser.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/ia64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.2
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at -e line 1.
Comment 1 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-01-19 10:44:49 EST
I tested this on ia64 and s390, I dont know if it's architecture
Comment 2 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-01-19 10:50:13 EST
It's actually reproducable on i386 too.
Comment 3 Reuben Farrelly 2005-01-19 15:59:19 EST
It'll be breaking all platforms.

Given that virtually all perl RPM packages are now broken since the upgrade
(core modules bundled with perl-5.8.6 work ok), perhaps it would be a good time
to systematically go through and update all the perl modules in the distribution
(most are tiny though), and rebuild against the current 5.8.6 binary.
Comment 4 Chip Turner 2005-01-20 22:15:46 EST
this should now be fixed in perl 5.8.6-2 and later, which should be in rawhide
