Description Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2011-10-11 09:48:33 UTC
These 2 files are left :


"equery -b ..." lists no package for both.

Looks like a cosmetic issue, isn't it ?

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Torsten Veller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-10-16 07:43:38 UTC
Well, these files should be removed by the ebuilds. But I don't have a solution,
because the path depends on the perl version used while installing.

One idea is to move them to /etc/perl.
Comment 2 Martin Mokrejš 2012-03-17 14:15:14 UTC
I have the same "issue". I saw them reported by "perl-cleaner all". Because they were from old perl versions I removed them and upgraded perl. Now, they are back. Could perl-cleaner be made quiet in these cases?

Comment 3 Geoff Madden 2012-07-14 11:19:33 UTC
Hi there, I have a hassle in that the upgrade to 5.16 goes ok,but If I use perl-cleaner,it removes perl 5.16,or at least any any logs that it is on my system.
This isn't a one off problem ,it's happened to me on 3 occasions,on different machines and processors.   My work around at present is not to use perl-cleaner,but just reemerge the asked for modules as ebuild failure occurs.

could some one have a look at perl-cleaner and see what the problem is,and remedy same. as its a pain in the you know where.

(In reply to comment #3)
I don't see how your problem is related to this bugreport.

Please open your own bugreport! If you do, please add the output of perl-cleaner --all -p and also emerge --info. Then we can try to help.

Can you please reproduce this bug for perl-5.16 (current stable). If so, please reopen bug.
Comment 6 Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2014-01-19 20:38:42 UTC
fixed AFAICS
Comment 7 Garri 2014-09-27 16:24:34 UTC
Same problems for me on update from 5.18.2-r1 to perl-5.20.1. The /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.18.2/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini is left.
Comment 8 Garri 2014-09-27 16:36:00 UTC
The reporter of bug 509096 describes same problems. Thanks in advance!
Comment 9 Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-09-27 17:49:28 UTC This sugggests its invulnerable to what version of perl you use., and this is probably a partial dup of that bug.
