Description Ian Durkacz 2008-02-22 15:26:04 UTC
Description of problem:

Package remctl-perl-2.11-4.el5 installs okay, but an attempt to use Net::Remctl
results in the error:

  symbol lookup error:  
undefined symbol: remctl

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


How reproducible:

Consistent failure.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. A simple test case is:

use Net::Remctl;
my $result = remctl("anyhost", undef, undef, "test", "echo", "Hi");
if ($result->error) {
  die "test echo failed with error ", $result->error, "\n";
} else {
  warn $result->stderr;
  print $result->stdout;
  exit $result->status;

Actual results:

As above:

/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: remctl

Expected results:

Additional info:

The problem seems to be caused by the use of the %{?_smp_mflags} macro in the
call to make in the spec file of RPM remctl-2.11-4.el5. On an SMP build machine,
the make then proceeds in the wrong order and the Perl package is built
incorrectly owing to missing dependencies.

This is fixed by 2.11-5 on EPEL-5
