Lately I've been seeing this every day caused by sa-update (spamassassin
updater) run from cron:
Subroutine Net::DNS::Resolver::Base::AF_INET6 redefined at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Exporter.pm line 65.
line 65I searched Google and saw that this issue was supposedly from 2008 and was
fixed. The only helpful thing I found was a couple people recommending to
remove perl-IO-Socket-INET6. I wanted to avoid the hassle of yum complaining
because I removed a package that is a dependency of others, so I asked for
help on the spamassassin and CentOS mailing lists. In the end, the CentOS
list members seemed to help me find the cause:
I had these (the seemingly relevant packages):
I was encouraged to try not to mix rpms from different repos, so
I changed to the CentOS repo for perl-Net-DNS:
Still no luck, and eventually it was suggested that
perl-NetAddr-IP might be the cause. After changing
it to CentOS repo, the bug has gone away:
So it appears that perl-NetAddr-IP-4.044-1.el5.rf might have
a redundant function definition (AF_INET6) in it.
HTH and thank you for your service!!
