Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-06-03 18:40:13 EDT
Description of problem:
The package perl-XML-Simple must require ate least one of the following packages:
 - perl-XML-SAX
 - perl-XML-Parser (fallback if perl-XML-SAX)

Affects both the rawhide and FC-5 versions and also the Fedora Extras versions
Comment 1 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-06-03 18:46:51 EDT

The missing requirement has been exposed by the recent massive rebuilds of FC-6
(rawhide) and Fedora Extras development in mock but using a reduced building root
(perl-XML-Parser is no longer installed in this build root).

For example, perl-Image-Info fails the at least on test due to this missing
requirement in perl-XML-Simple.  For the complete build log see 

Could you add the perl-XML-Parser requirement to the rawhide version so that we
could make a couple of more tests?

Thanks in advance,
(the FE maintainer of perl-XML-Simple)
Comment 2 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-06-03 18:50:29 EDT
For more details about the missing requirement see the code of the build_tree
function in the Simple.pm file.  Rpmbuild never adds the perl modules in
requirement statments to the requirments list.

Comment 3 Jason Vas Dias 2006-06-07 17:00:22 EDT
Now fixed with perl-XML-Simple-2.14-4.fc5, being released to FC-5/Updates/Testing
- perl-XML-Simple now
'BuildRequires: perl(XML::Parser) perl(XML::SAX) perl(XML::LibXML)
(see bug 191911).

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2006-06-07 19:39:42 EDT
perl-XML-Simple-2.14-4.fc5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
