Description Tres 'RiverRat' Melton 2008-05-19 06:12:35 UTC
I rebuilt perl with the USE="ithreads" flag and now many things can't find the files correctly.  The current problem looks like so:

 ./ -z                                                                                                               
Can't locate HTML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /etc/perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Mail/SpamAssassin/ line 26.

The first issue I had after this was with perl-core/DB_File and it seems that simply re-emerging the afflicted package corrects it.  Shouldn't 

emerge -avDtN world

fix such things?  I can confirm that

emerge -avDt dev-perl/HTML-Parser

Fixed the above error as did 

emerge -avDt perl-core/DB_File

fix the previous problem.

Please run perl-updater and reopen this bug if that doesn't fix the problem.
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-19 16:43:33 UTC
Er, perl-cleaner that is.
Comment 3 Tres 'RiverRat' Melton 2008-05-21 00:06:10 UTC
I'm almost positive that I ran perl-cleaner and revdep-rebuild after those tweaks but may be mistaken (it may have been after others).  I do not however recall a warning suggesting I do so though so perhaps just emitting a warning would be in order.  Particularly if changing USE flags that will move perl-modules from on place to another such as into or out of:


Or other include strings where it seems that USE flags are incorporated into the path.  As it stands now it is a production server and I can't really do that right now.  Perhaps I will have a test machine in the future to do it on.  I do think that closing/resolving this bug is premature though.  If you agree rej you can re-open it and ping me on IRC.

Sounds good.

Comment 6 Clemente Aguiar 2009-02-22 12:33:15 UTC
I actually reported a bug yesterday which I think it closely related to this one.
I cannot install openoffice-3.0.0 because the installer cannot find a perl module.


Here is my perl configuration:
