Description Richard W.M. Jones 2009-09-07 11:55:02 EDT
Description of problem:

(See also bug 521319).

The Perl modules in libguestfs are unversioned.  This leads
to unversioned RPM dependencies:

$ rpm -qR perl-libguestfs
[...]
perl(Sys::Guestfs)  
[...]

Apparently we can solve this by putting a version number
into the module itself.

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

1.0.68 and later.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qR perl-libguestfs | grep ::Guestfs
2. Check if the perl dep is versioned.
3.
  
Actual results:

$ rpm -qR perl-libguestfs | grep ::Guestfs
perl(Sys::Guestfs)

Expected results:

$ rpm -qR perl-libguestfs | grep ::Guestfs
perl(Sys::Guestfs) = 1.0.68   [or whatever]

Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-09-07 11:56:38 EDT
Sorry, was looking at the wrong deps.  Try this:

$ rpm -q --provides perl-libguestfs | grep ::Guestfs
perl(Sys::Guestfs)  
perl(Sys::Guestfs::Lib)
