Description Jitka Plesnikova 2017-08-09 11:23:28 EDT
Latest Fedora delivers 1.42 version. Upstream released 2.12. When you have free time, please upgrade it.

The latest version is required for Net-SFTP-0.12.
Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2017-08-09 11:33:00 EDT
Net-SSH-Perl 2.x depends on CryptX, which bundles libtomcrypt.

Denis Fateyev did show some interest in packaging CryptX but the discussion seemed to tail off around November last year:


Unless someone is willing to package CryptX, Net-SSH-Perl will be stuck at 1.42.
Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2018-02-26 10:06:54 EST
I have now update perl-Net-SSH-Perl to 2.14 in F-28 and Rawhide, albeit hobbled somewhat due to missing ECC support in perl-CryptX (Bug #1545816).

F-28 build:

Rawhide build:

I've tested that I can use the eg/pssh script to access some of my machines but the hobbling process may result in some broken behavior that I haven't spotted.
