Description Robin Lee 2013-05-28 01:10:41 EDT
Description of problem:
This package include /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/B/BUtils.pm. But it doesn't follow common Perl practice. The packege this module file provdies is 'B::Utils' instead of 'B::BUtils'. Though B/BUtils.pm is a fork of B::Utils.

Then RPM's which requires perl(B::Utils) will break. Since yum/rpm may consider perl-Module-Info could fulfill the dependency. Program that 'use B::Utils' cannot find B/Utils.pm in perl-Module-Info.

Consider filter the perl(B::Utils) provides. Or link B/Utils.pm to B/BUtils.pm and make it conflict perl-B-Utils

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

How reproducible:
perl -mB::Utils
