Net SSH Perl module
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:08 EST
Description of problem:
Using Net SSH Perl from CPAN, expeirencing slow ssh connection. While
installing it, noticed Crypt::DH module takes a long time to install. Is there a
bug with Fedora that is not playing nice with Crypt::DH. Could it be the
different glibc version be affecting it?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Net::SSH::Perl
2. try to connect with it
takes over an hour to install Crypt::DH, so far I am only at this junction:
*** ExtUtils::AutoInstall version 0.56
*** Checking for dependencies...
- Math::BigInt ...loaded. (1.73 >= 1.60)
*** ExtUtils::AutoInstall configuration finished.
Checking if your kit is complete...
Writing Makefile for Crypt::DH
cp lib/Crypt/DH.pm blib/lib/Crypt/DH.pm
/usr/bin/make -- OK
Running make test
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0,
'inc', 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/00-compile.t t/01-dh.t
CPAN modules are not the responsibility of the Fedora Project unless they are
packaged in Extras, in that case they are the responsibility of the package
owner. Since you seem to be installing your own module manually, I must close
this NOTABUG. You should either go upstream for help, or file it against glibc
if you are certain this a problem unique to our glibc.
Connection time should be better if you install a perl binding for GMP to
improve performance of Math::BigInt. for instance Math::BigInt::GMP
