Description Tadej Janež 2013-03-10 15:15:39 UTC
I did a fresh install of F18. After that I installed rpmlint and used it to check some package.
I was given three warnings of the form:
sh: /user/bin/perl: No such file or directory

Perl is not installed on the machine. I guess rpmlint should require perl?

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 20:38:13 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
