Description Ben Herrick 2002-09-05 19:03:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
foomatic is installing its vendor supplied files into the site_perl modules
directory. All other Redhat rpms for perl modules are installing their files
into the vendor_perl directory.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh foomatic-1.1-0.20020313.3.i386.rpm
2. Check /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/
3. Be surprised to find files from an RPM there. <gasp> :)

Actual Results:  Files showed up in the wrong place.

Expected Results:  Files should show up in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1/

Additional info:

The following patch to the Redhat provided .spec file should fix this problem.
Thanks for your time.
