Description Ted Rule 2007-10-29 14:26:29 UTC
Description of problem:

logwatch's "range" parameter can potentially make use of "human readable date
ranges". However, this depends on the Date::Manip Perl module. Because logwatch
can run with reduced functionality without the Date::Manip module, the extra
perl-DateManip RPM is not automatically installed as a dependency of logwatch.

Since the perl-DateManip RPM has been available as part of the Core OS for a
long time, it seems reasonable to add:

Requires: perl(Date::Manip)

to logwatch's SPEC file so that the perl-DateManip RPM is installed automatically.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

For instance:

$ sudo logwatch --service=iptables --range='since 10/10/2007' --print |more
ERROR: Range "since 10/10/2007" not understood

This system does not have Date::Manip module loaded, and therefore
the only valid --range parameters are 'yesterday', 'today', or 'all'.
The Date::Manip module can be installed by using either of:
   cpan -i 'Date::Manip'
   perl -MCPAN -e 'install Date::Manip'

Steps to Reproduce:
