Description Eric Eisenhart 2010-11-12 16:55:52 EST
Description of problem:
perl-XML-Dumper package is missing the perl() dependencies required for it to actually work.  In particular, perl(XML::Parser).

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

How reproducible:
yum install perl-XML-Dumper
perl -MXML::Dumper -e 0
rpm -q --requires perl-XML-Dumper

Steps to Reproduce:
yum install perl-XML-Dumper
perl -MXML::Dumper -e 0
rpm -q --requires perl-XML-Dumper
Actual results:
# perl -MXML::Dumper -e 0
Can't locate XML/Parser.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /usr/share/perl5/XML/Dumper.pm line 144.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/perl5/XML/Dumper.pm line 144.
Compilation failed in require.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

# rpm -q --requires perl-XML-Dumper
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1

Expected results:
# perl -MXML::Dumper -e 0
(should return nothing)

# rpm -q --requires perl-XML-Dumper

(all the other perl() dependencies are provided in the perl package, but perl(XML::Parser) is in perl-XML-Parser)
Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-11-15 02:48:32 EST
The perl-XML-Parser is included in RHEL-6, it's missing only in spec file. This should be easy fix, thanks for report.
Comment 3 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2011-02-15 16:45:13 EST
This issue was proposed for RHEL 6.1 FasTrack but did not get resolved in time.
It has been moved to RHEL 6.2 FasTrack.
