Description Alexander Gretencord 2004-11-28 10:04:41 UTC
emerge -vp says:

[ebuild  N   ] dev-util/intltool-0.31.2  0 kB

but once the compile starts you get:

checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool

So intltool should have a dep on it. (Not just a runtime dep) or this check has to be removed ...

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

OK actually I had XML-Parser 2.31 installed but intltool failed with the aforementioned error. Now I have 2.34 and it works.

please please use search, there is a new bug about this every day.

Well then you tell me what to search for. I see a problem with intltool, I search for intltool, nothing shows up, I see a problem with XML-Parser, I search for XML-Parser, nothing shows up.

Then learn to search, if i search for xml-parser i get 3 dozen bugs. We're not here to hold hands.
Comment 5 Alexander Gretencord 2004-11-28 14:33:36 UTC
Well actually I even used the hand holding reporting function in bugzilla :) And I have to admit that I did not search for "ALL intltool" but just intltool.

Perhaps you should consider just putting the ALL into the link or already filling it into the text field or something, most people don't read carefully (especially when they are in a hurry). This would probably further reduce false positives.

So, sorry for not reading carefully enough.
