Can't locate Net/DNS/Packet.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Net::DNS::Packet module) (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib64/perl5/5.30.1/x86_64-linux /usr/local/lib64/perl5/5.30.1 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.30.1/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.30.1 /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.30.1/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/5.30.1) at /usr/bin/chaosreader line 335.

Thanks for the report.
Yes, the dependency seems to be needed. However, even with the dependency installed i still get errors like below:

/usr/bin/chaosreader has too many errors
Unfortunately my perl skills are pretty much non-exists so it's pretty out of my scope to fix this. I'll ask upstream and hope it can be fixed.
I've made a issue on the github page, let's see what the dev can do here.
I guess it's related to the newer perl version (5.30). Unfortunately i haven't used chaosreader for a long time which is why i can't say for sure.
I'm going to remove myself as maintainer of this software (see ). I haven't used it for a long time and because of this bug i couldn't even use it.
Unfortunately i also haven't got any response from upstream, which is why i consider this software as tree clean candidate.
I agree that software is dead. Please open another bug report if you care
reopening, because it is not solved.
Upstream seems inactive, we should tree clean, if it is unusable.
It is unusable and dead. Please open a separate bug for cleaning
