Description of problem:
# debuginfo-install perl perl-threads
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib64/perl5/auto/threads/threads.so.debug from install of perl-threads-debuginfo-1.81-1.fc14.x86_64 conflicts with file from package perl-debuginfo-4:5.12.2-140.fc14.x86_64
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. debuginfo-install perl perl-threads
No idea whom to blame for this and who should take action.
As things appear to me, rpm+yum don't correctly handle the debuginfos originating from perl's dual-lived modules.
Damned rpmbuild. It pushes debug data for all subpackages into one package.
We need to teach rpmbuild to create separate debuginfo subpackages, or to remove superseded subpackages to clean perl-debuginfo.

That is bug 185590.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
