perl-Carp-Clan is the dependancy upon which perl-Bit-Vector fails. However, if you look into the perl-Bit-Vector RPM's detail, you notice on some versions it provides the Carp-Clan module.
After I posted this, I found aversion of perl-Bit-Vector that does not have this dependancy, however once installed it conflicts with a file in the perl-Date-Calc RPM when installing it. I can force it to install but the exim script for logwatch still does not work, which doesn't suprise me with this somewhat cludgy workraround.
Here are the lines in the exim script that cause it to fail (specifically the second one)...
eval "require Tie::IxHash" or exit 0;
eval "require Date::Calc qw(Delta_Days)" or exit 0;
The perl script tests to see if i can use the Date::Calc module and upon seeing that it cannot, immediately exits (this can be verified with a couple of prints to STDOUT).
The end result is that logwatch is not reporting exim related information. I could hack a workaround into the exim script but I'm really very surprised noone else is experiencing this problem as it has happened to me on both a RH 7.3 box and an RH 9.0 box (both of them clean installs).
Is anyone getting exim reports through logwatch?
