Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227655
libnet.cfg in wrong directory
Last modified: 2009-05-18 16:08:16 EDT
Description of problem:
The perl configuration file libnet.cfg controls whether perl CPAN requests use
active or passive FTP. On x86_64 installations, this file has been placed in
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.5/Net and has no effect on FTP. All the other libnet files
are in their usual place of /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net. If this file is copied to
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net, then it is effective.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
new installation of RHEL 4 on x86_64 platform
file /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.5/Net/libnet.cfg is created. This has no effect.
this file should be /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net/libnet.cfg
