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....

Comment 1 Ian Burrell 2006-09-07 16:55:46 EDT
This is caused by the
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Net/SSL.pm file
containing the line: 

package DB;

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
"require DB".

The provides should definitely be filtered out.
Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2006-10-17 15:55:09 EDT
This fix didn't make it into FC6, but should be available as an update, and is
fixed in FC7 and RHEL-5.
Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2006-10-26 11:31:17 EDT
$ 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.
