Description David Barnwell 2007-02-07 12:38:49 UTC
Description of problem:
The perl configuration file libnet.cfg controls whether perl CPAN requests use
active or passive FTP. On x86_64 installations, this file has been placed in
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.5/Net and has no effect on FTP. All the other libnet files
are in their usual place of /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net. If this file is copied to
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net, then it is effective.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always occurs

Steps to Reproduce:
new installation of RHEL 4 on x86_64 platform
Actual results:
file /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.5/Net/libnet.cfg is created. This has no effect.

Expected results:
this file should be /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/Net/libnet.cfg
