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!!
