Description Peter Bowen 2002-03-28 14:48:01 UTC
Today's rawhide perl (perl-5.6.1-34.99.5) contains /usr/bin/suidperl.  It
doesn't obsolete or conflict with perl-suidperl (perl-suidperl-5.6.1-28.99.4). 
This makes it uninstallable via automated methods.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-28 21:45:57 UTC
Chip, is this the way you want to package it going forward, or was this accidental?

Comment 2 Chip Turner 2002-03-29 17:45:58 UTC
yeah splitting suidperl out is the eventual goal, but right now we can't; the
central perl package needs to have a Require: on it so that anaconda pulls it in
when it does an upgrade.  this ends up making it non-optional.  the split out
cpan modules do the same, but they can at least be updated independent of the
core perl package, which suidperl can't do.  I can split it back out without the
Requires: in the main perl package, but it may break anaconda upgrades from
older releases.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-03-31 17:03:20 UTC
Anaconda does not require a 'requires' on it to pull it in on upgrade... as long
as it contains files that were in the old package, it will find it.

Comment 4 Chip Turner 2002-04-01 00:44:36 UTC
ahh, right, the anaconda problem is with the packages that contain only files that
move (the perl modules themselves).  I'd forgotten than it looks for files that
are removed and tries to satisfy those dependencies.  I'll build a new perl with
suid split back out, then.

Comment 5 Chip Turner 2002-04-11 00:11:18 UTC
latest build in rawhide now has the suidperl package split

Comment 6 Jay Turner 2002-04-11 14:54:28 UTC
Indeed 5.6.1-34.99.6 has the perl-suidperl stuff split out from the core perl
package.  Closing out.
