I'm trying to install perl-IO-Compress from OBS, but it says I need perl

The strange thing is I have perl 5.14.2, so I'm confused.  If anyone
can tell me what's going on, I'd appreciate it.

i | perl-base       | package | 5.14.2-1.9 | x86_64 | openSUSE-12.1-OSS

  | perl-base-32bit | package | 5.14.2-1.9 | x86_64 | openSUSE-12.1-OSS

As you can see I have perl 5.14.2 installed from the openSUSE 12.1 main repo

Looks like the problem is that perl provides "perl = 5.14.2-1.9", so the rpm
dependency should be >= and not =



I think the real issue is this line from the perl specfile:

Provides: perl-IO-Zlib perl-IO-Compress-Base perl-IO-Compress-Zlib
Obsoletes: perl-IO-Zlib perl-IO-Compress-Base perl-IO-Compress-Zlib

Note the absence of perl-IO-Compress. I can branch perl in OBS and
add perl-IO-Compress easily enough, but I don't think I know enough
about perl to test it outside of the one package I'm testing that uses

I just asked on the -packaging list if adding perl-IO-Compress to the
above makes sense. If I get buy-in and that fixes the issue for me,
I'll SR an update to D:L:P::perl

Let me know if you agree.
