Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC6 to Fedora 7, perl no longer works. Any application
that needs perl displays the following error message:
perl: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/perl: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
I have checked ldd, and there are no dynamic links for perl.
rpm -V perl gives:
prelink: /usr/bin/a2p: at least one of file's dependencies has changed since
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): perl-5.8.8-18.fc7
How reproducible: Every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
worked fin in FC6
The update from FC6 to Fedora 7 resulted in yum not applying the dependency of
perl-libs. This package was never installed. I have manually added this
package, and the other applications appear to work now.
Is this dependency missing from the rpms file?
Greg - this is one we're blaming on yum. See bug #240540
