Description Chip Turner 2001-04-22 02:49:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686)

The spec file generated by cpanflute is broken.  It has:

BuildRequires: perl >= 5.00503
Requires: perl >= 5.00503

which, under perl 5.6.0 fails because the epoch is not listed.  The proper
settings would be:

BuildRequires: perl >= 0:5.00503
Requires: perl >= 0:5.00503

(as discussed in bugs 26009 and 19100)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run cpanflute on a tarball from cpan.

Actual Results:  It breaks: 
[root@magneto math-gmp]# /usr/lib/rpm/cpanflute
error: failed build dependencies:
        perl >= 5.00503 is needed by perl-Digest-MD5-2.13-6
RPM test unpacking failed!

Expected Results:  [root@magneto math-gmp]# /usr/lib/rpm/cpanflute
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.54389
+ umask 022
+ cd /tmp/cpan/junk
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-04-22 04:58:00 EDT
Epoch added to perl dependency in CVS, should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.8 and later.
