Description Marcela Mašláňová 2009-06-22 11:21:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Scalar::Util release was updated on cpan which means broken packages dependent on this module after update to the next minor release. This is done by our install paths. The known workaround is keep the same version as it is in cpan.

The install paths will be fixed in next major release. Until then we must update this module.

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

How reproducible:
1) install Scalar::Util module from CPAN:

   perl -MCPAN -e shell
   cpan> force install "Scalar::Util"
   cpan> quit


   perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "Scalar::Util"'

   The latter is nicer, but the force would not work for me here,
   don't know why, it reports "Scalar::Util is up to date" :-(

2) reinstall/upgrade the perl package

   rpm -Uvh --force perl-current-or-newer-version.rpm

3) perl -MScalar::Util=dualvar -e 1

The last step should work flawlessly for fixed packages, and report the
following error for the broken ones:

   is only avaliable with the XS version at -e line 0
   BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
Actual results:
FAIL: i386, ia64, ppc
The test fail only on archs, where are same install paths for cpan and rpm.

Expected results:
PASS: on all architectures
