Description Michael Schwendt 2007-07-05 14:14:27 UTC
There are bad Perl package "Provides" in mrtg:

Comment 1 Chris Adams 2007-08-14 18:58:26 UTC
I just ran into this because yum will prefer mrtg as a source for
perl(SNMP_Session) over the real source, perl-SNMP_Session.  This leads to
broken installs of RPMs that use the modules from perl-SNMP_Session.

This needs to be fixed ASAP since it leads to broken programs.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2007-09-19 22:57:13 UTC
Do you need help? This bug is still present in rawhide, too.


Comment 3 Vitezslav Crhonek 2007-09-20 09:25:08 UTC
Sorry for the delay, it's fixed in F-7 and rawhide now.

Comment 6 Chris Adams 2007-10-12 00:56:32 UTC
It is still claiming to provide a bunch of perl modules that aren't really
installed for the system (they are all in a private MRTG directory).  The
following two are provided (for real) by perl-SNMP_Session:

  perl(SNMPv1_Session)  
  perl(SNMPv2c_Session)  

I _think_ the rest of the provides are probably harmless (because they don't
appear to overlap any real modules).
