Description of problem:

I installed the package polymake and I encountered two problems:

After typing polymake in the command line, I got an error message about a non-found perl-module;  the solution is to move
/usr/lib64/polymake/perlx/5.16.2 to /usr/lib64/polymake/perlx/5.16.3 to match with the actual version or perl.

After this change, the program needs the package perl-Term-ReadLine-Gnu which was not installed and was not a dependence. After installing it, everything is OK. 

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

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Jerry James 2013-05-15 17:55:39 EDT
Thanks for the bug report.  The solution is to (a) Require the exact version of perl used to build so I get a broken dependency report when perl is updated, and (b) explicitly Require perl(Term::ReadLine::Gnu).  I'm surprised that dependency is not autogenerated, but I'll deal with it. :-)

New builds coming soon.
