Subject: "cannot resolve circular dependency" thrown with 1.003

We get many people coming on IRC complaining that they cannot install Math::Random::ISAAC 1.003 due to a circular dependency with Math::Random::ISAAC::XS. This problem happens when none is installed: "Could not make: cannot resolve circular dependency" This is a regression in 1.003 as 1.002 was working fine. We need 1.004 with this problem fixed asap as people keep getting this error, and cpan downloads the latest one. :)

CPAN Testers doesn't seem to be reproducing this issue. However, somehow Math::Random::ISAAC::XS got moved to Requires where it was Recommends before. Please give me some time to investigate, I hope to push a fixed release tonight. Cheers, Jonathan

irc.mozilla.org. Bugzilla now uses your module to generate strong random data, and people join our channel to complain that they have trouble when installing/upgrading Bugzilla. Show quoted text

Hi, I have fixed the issue and pushed updated versions of both packages. It turns out I was using Dist::Zilla incorrectly, as I specified: [Prereqs/Recommends] rather than [Prereqs/RuntimeRecommends] I'm marking this bug as resolved now. If there are further issues, please reply, and the ticket should be automatically re-opened. Thanks! On Thu Feb 17 11:46:36 2011, lpsolit@gmail.com wrote: Show quoted text
