Description Peter Bieringer 2020-10-22 06:55:15 UTC
Description of problem:
amavisd-new-snmp can't be installed on EL8 because of dependency "net-snmp-perl"  was dropped from EL8 and also not available on EPEL8

Version:
2.12.0-9


How reproducible:
always


Steps to Reproduce:
yum install amavisd-new-snmp
Last metadata expiration check: 0:15:58 ago on Thu Oct 22 08:35:19 2020.

Actual results:

Error: 
 Problem: cannot install the best candidate for the job
  - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::ASN) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch
  - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::OID) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch
  - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::agent) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch
  - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::default_store) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)


Expected results:
working

Additional info:
There is "net-snmp-perl" available on Okay-repo, but this downgrades also net-snmp-libs (and others).

Imho it was a very strange decission to drop the "net-snmp-perl", because potentially this cannot even put dedicated into EPEL8...

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2020-10-22 08:31:03 UTC
You are right that net-snmp-perl is not provided by EL 8. And that's a mistake in amavisd-new-snmp package. But that could change in EL 8.3 version because CentOS Stream 8, that is a rolling preview of the next RHEL minor release, provides the package <http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8-stream/AppStream/x86_64/os/Packages/net-snmp-perl-5.8-17.el8.x86_64.rpm>. Thus I believe this bug gets resolved when EL 8.3 is released.
