Re: Bug#215730: libnet-perl: provides Net::Config, which is in perl-modules



Hi,

As this is issue of perl-packaging i want to discuss this on
debian-perl@l.d.o.

OK, the problem is this: libnet-perl installs its modules to
/usr/share/perl5/Net/ (no problem there). The modules provided by
perl-modules are installed to /usr/share/perl/5.8.1/Net/ (still no
problem), but Net::Config is installed to /etc/perl/Net/ - which is a
problem! On a normal Debian system, the files included in libnet-perl
won't use their own Config.pm but the older one included in
perl-modules.

A solution for that would be to move /etc/perl/Net/Config.pm to
/usr/share/perl/5.8.1/Net/. I attached a patch for this solution.
