gnucash 2.0: Finance::Quote Module not installed properly
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:01:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I've been trying the 2.0 release of gnucash located in Testing, and have come
across the following bug when attempting to automatically update the price of a
security. Here is a related thread over at gnucash:
According to the Gnucash readme file, a user is supposed to run the script
"update-finance-quote" as su in order to get the latest perl modules, but I
cannot locate this script.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.0.0
How reproducible: Every Time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a security in Edit mode, and the warning appears in the lower half of
the dialog box.
the warning message "Warning: Finance::Quote Module not installed properly"
appears at the lower half of the dialog box, and the automatic update options
are grayed out.
Ability to update the security price.
Hm, that readme should probably be changed. Try 'yum install perl-Finanace-Quote'.
I installed the perl-Finance-Quote package, and it still did not work.
I then tried running /usr/bin/gnc-fq-update as su, as instructed in the gnucash
user guide. This did not complete successfully with an error code of 255.
I then tried to run /usr/bin/gnc-fq-dump to test the setup, and it complained
thet perl-Crypt-SSLeay is missing.
I then installed the package perl-Crypt-SSLeay. The module now appears to be
correctly installed in Gnucash.
Should the RPMS now include dependancies for perl-Finance-Quote and
Fixed (req for perl-Crypt-SSLeay) added in 2.0.1-4.fc6.
