Subject: circular dependency
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 551b
In the interactive section I answered yes for all mandatory and optional dependencies. Then CPAN.pm reported: cpan[7]> install Handel Recursive dependency detected: Handel (have: N/A; want: 1.00003) => CLACO/Handel-1.00003.tar.gz => Handel::Storage::RDBO (have: N/A; requires: 1.00001) => CLACO/Handel-Storage-RDBO-1.00001.tar.gz => Handel (have: N/A; requires: 1.00000). Cannot resolve. When I start over and answer no to the optional dependecy, then the problem goes away. But what's the point in offering a dependency that cannot be met?

Yeah, I hadn't even through of the circular dep. 1.00003 just converted to Module::Install which is the first time I listed it as an option...and I had it installed already. Duh. Guess the only option is to remove Handel as a prereq on the RDBO dist...which seems ok now that it's an option of Handel itself.. I wonder what the normal practice is.. Thanks for the RT, -=Chris
