Description Alex B 2019-03-14 12:10:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Using a cluster command console in "Asbru Connection Manager" throws following error(s):

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Expect.pm line 1077.
Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Expect.pm line 1086.
Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Expect.pm line 1093.
Use of uninitialized value in regexp compilation at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Expect.pm line 763.

Note: I've raised the bugreport for the Asbru developer (See: https://github.com/asbru-cm/asbru-cm/issues/134) but was told it is an Expect-related issue so here i am. 

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

Sadly i don't know what exactly is being called under the hood.



Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2019-03-14 12:49:57 UTC
It would be helpful to know how Expect was being called; this looks like some uninitialized parameter being passed to it.

The upstream maintainer of Expect can probably do a better job of debugging this than I can. Perhaps raise it upstream at https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Expect ?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 29 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '29'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 29 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 Ben Cotton 2019-11-27 21:29:22 UTC
Fedora 29 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-11-26. Fedora 29 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
