maybe shouldn't provide perl(DB)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:42 EST
Description of problem:
I found by chance that perl-Crypt-SSLeay provides perl(DB),
which is also provided by perl. So, at the first sight,
it seems that there is something wrong. I haven't
investigated more, so it may be completly right for
perl-Crypt-SSLeay to provide perl(DB), if it is the case
sorry for the noise....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is caused by the
containing the line:
This causes the perl provides finder to think it provides "perl(DB)".
It looks like the code is using the Perl debugging API to reach up the stack (a
pretty nasty hack). I am not sure why it is doing "package DB" instead of
The provides should definitely be filtered out.
This fix didn't make it into FC6, but should be available as an update, and is
fixed in FC7 and RHEL-5.
$ rpm -q --provides perl-Crypt-SSLeay
perl(Crypt::SSLeay) = 0.51
perl(Net::SSL) = 2.77
perl-Crypt-SSLeay = 0.51-11.fc7
Verified, I close the bug with resolution RAWHIDE, feel free
to do otherwise if it is a mistake.
