perl-Language-Expr: FTBFS in rawhide
Last modified: 2015-06-01 03:51:36 EDT
Your package perl-Language-Expr failed to build from source in current rawhide.
NOTE: build logs are cleaned up after 1 week
For details on mass rebuild see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_20_Mass_Rebuild
Should be fix by the latest upstream version Language-Expr-0.21.
Please update it.
I don't think so; it depends on Regexp::Grammars, which blurts out a huge warning and croaks when used. It might work with an older version of Regexp::Grammars that doesn't have that, perhaps.
It still doesn't work with the new Regexp::Grammars 1.031 either. Looks like we might have to wait for Perl 5.18.2.
Yes it seems we have to wait https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=87880#txn-1250566
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Affects both Rawhide and F20.

Is there something I can do to prevent failures such as bz1025004? E.g. delete the package from F20 somehow?
Well you could retire the package and anything that depended on it but then you'd still have the problem that people with the package installed at F-19 would have dependency errors trying to upgrade to F-20. And it would then need re-reviewing before it could be re-introduced into Fedora once fixed.
If it was my package I'd just sit it out until 5.18.2 came out, which will hopefully result in a fix.
This is still broken in the Fedora 20 release, and draws quite some packages with it (amongst which are uuid, perl-OpenGL, some perl-Math parts, and perl-Digest-SHA1).
I think this should just be fixed, and should certainly not be removed.
I'm not quite sure if this is going to be fixed as it depends on "bug" in Perl itself. I didn't mean to break anything, all I wanted was to prevent broken updates to F20.
Okay, though I would really like to see this being fixed.
Please note that I was mistaken: it isn't a dep for all of the packages I said, yum was tricking me with the remove-leaves plugin.
The list of packages that depend on perl-Language-Expr according to repoquery is:
All of them no longer depend on this in F20.
Dropping CommonBugs, as this doesn't actually appear to be an issue in F20.
It's an issue when upgrading to F20
If no other app depends on perl-Language-Expr any more, why?
Because an F-19 system with perl-Language-Expr installed can't be upgraded without breaking dependencies?
The perl-Language-Expr package can't be uninstalled on the F-19 system prior to upgrading because it's a dependency of various packages on F-19 even though they don't have that dependency on F-20.
I still don't see what dependencies are broken on an F20 upgrade if *nothing in F20 requires perl-Language-Expr*. Has someone actually checked this and encountered some kind of dependency issue? If so, what?
Oh, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1025004 , I see.
"The bug in Perl that is breaking Regexp::Grammars is still present in
5.18.2. I have raised the issue again with the folks who may be able to
expedite a fix."

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This package has been removed from Fedora 21.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is 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 change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
Resolved in Fedora 21.
