Description avan 2003-01-22 13:15:40 UTC
emerging perl 5.8 makes spammassassin crash. The fix is to re-emerge HTML-Parser.

The tail end of the build process for perl 5.8 (possibly missed, I tried to
catch those that did miss it in an email to all mailing lists about a month ago)
was to run the post-emerge script to rebuild your perl modules. This script
would have caught both perl modules and those items compiled against your old Is this then resolved for you? (I've been unavailable for over a
week now, sorry).

Rebuilding doesn't work if you are upgrading from binary packages with emerge -k. 
It needs to be added as a new dependency or a new release.

rac: any ideas on this ?
Comment 4 Robert Coie (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-05-05 14:49:25 UTC
Binary packages are a tricky issue, and I think some amount of trouble here
may be an unavoidable part of the territory.  Any sort of long-term solution,
were one to exist, would, I think, have to be part of portage proper.  Marking
the bug as LATER.
