Description: Perl interface to get stock quotes from Yahoo! Finance
Comment 1 Christopher Stone 2006-09-24 14:40:12 EDT
BuildRequires needs perl(HTTP::Request::Common) in order for mock to run %check.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2006-09-24 17:24:12 EDT
Oops, we need to turn off the %check because a package build must not require
network access.  Thanks.

Comment 3 Christopher Stone 2006-09-25 18:12:57 EDT
Warren:  I tried to build this under mock with %check enabled and a BR of
perl(HTTP::Request::Common).  This also results in a failure and warnings
mentioned in the build log of missing packages.  By using a BR of
perl(HTTP::Request), this fixes the problem.

perl(HTTP::Request) needs to be added to the BR in order for %check to function
and should be added even though it is not used for official builds.  A developer
who enables the %check section would not automatically know this otherwise.

The build log also indicates that rpm is adding a Requires of
perl(HTTP::Request::Common), however, when I tried using this for a BR, it fails
and the following warnings are shown:
Warning: prerequisite HTML::Parser 2.2 not found.
Warning: prerequisite HTTP::Request 1.23 not found.
Warning: prerequisite LWP::UserAgent 1.62 not found.

These packages do not show up as being required by rpm.  Therefore, I think a
"Requires: perl(HTTP::Request)" also needs to be added to the spec file.  Please
add this unless you can show that it is not required.

Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2006-09-25 18:57:43 EDT
I've looked into this problem a bit more and the root.log is showing that using
perl(HTTP::Request::Common) brings in the mod_perl package instead of the
perl-libwww-perl package.

Should mod_perl be Providing perl(HTTP::Request::Common)?
Comment 5 Christopher Stone 2006-09-27 18:53:26 EDT
Ok, I found the problem, see bug #208348
Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2006-12-22 12:36:03 EST
This package is currently approved for FC7+ only.

mod_perl-2.0.3-3 must be built for FC6/FC5 before branching to those releases.

See bug #197841 for more information.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2006-12-23 13:08:02 EST
Imported and branched on FC5 and FC6.  (mod_perl while problematic was a
non-issue for this.)
