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.
Actual results:
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.

Expected results:
Ability to update the security price.

Hm, that readme should probably be changed. Try 'yum install perl-Finanace-Quote'.

Hi There.

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

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-22 16:06:32 EDT
Fixed (req for perl-Crypt-SSLeay) added in 2.0.1-4.fc6.
