R gives us a number of perl provides:
perl(File::Copy::Recursive) = 0.31
perl(Text::DelimMatch) = 1.01
This, understandably, confuses apt/yum:
Package perl(File::Copy::Recursive) is a virtual package provided by:
You should explicitly select one to install.
Given that these modules are installed by R, but to non-standard directories,
I'm of the opinion they should be filtered. (Especially when
perl-File-Copy-Recursive works just fine for me :))
And we might consider filing bugs with upstream to just use the system-provided
versions of those modules unless there's a really good reason not to.
Looks like spot fixed this, but there isn't anything else in the distro that
provides perl(Test::DelimMatch) and so R can't be installed.
I fixed that mistake this morning, sorry for the problem.
R-2.6.0-3.fc7.1 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
