    Problem with installing Perl modules for SpamAssassin

    We always install the required Perl modules for SPamAssassin with cpan, according to http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=36 In Debian 8.0 I had trouble getting it to work. It was because of 2 modules, Mail::SPF and LWP::Protocol::https (I'm not sure if this is required for SpamAssassin to be honest, maybe it's a dependency of another module, but we explicitly installed it).

    Error for Mail::SPF
    Code:

    I could install both by entering the cpan shell and install the modules with notest argument:
    [cdoe]
    # cpan
    Terminal does not support AddHistory.

    cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v2.05)
    Enter 'h' for help.

    cpan[1]> notest install LWP::Protocol::https

    cpan[1]> notest install Mail::SPF
    [/code]

    I'm not sure (yet) if SpamAssassin runs without problems. It could be installed without problems but maybe some tests will fail.

    Hello,

    I guess you may ignore the failed tests:

    ...
    Can't connect to www.apache.org:443 (certificate verify failed)
    Unknown error on DNS 'A' lookup of 'example.com'
    ...

    Yes, I think so too, but the module didn't get installed. Therefore I needed to install it with notest parameter. At first I thought it had something to do with internet connectivity or DNS, but everything is fine, I can reach different site all over the world and DNS is working fine. We didn't have this problem with Debian 7 (wheezy).

    I did not have a chance to work with Debian 8 as of yet. So I don't have anything to add.
    But I do confirm I had no those issues with Debian 6, 7 the same as you.

    Tristan. This probably also has to do with issues in NET:NS versions of CPAN. The issue is occuring with versions from above somethingn like 0.78 and is only fixed in version 1.04.
    Greetings, Richard.

    Thanks Richard, already running Net-DNS-1.04 over here though. Thinking now it might also be fixed by downgrading to the stock Debian version?

    Can't help you there. I'm not running Debian so I don't know if it might be fixed in stock versions.

    I recently installed a Debian 7 box and with these packages you don't need to bother with any cpan stuff

    apt-get install libhttp-date-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl libnet-dns-perl libhtml-parser-perl libdigest-sha1-perl perl-base perl-modules

    That might be a way more elegant solution Arieh, maybe time to update:

    http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=36

    for Debian users? According to Debian, these are the suggested perl library packages for SpamAssassin 3.4.1 in Debian testing:
    Code:
    libarchive-tar-perl
    libhtml-parser-perl
    libhttp-date-perl
    libnet-dns-perl
    libnetaddr-ip-perl
    libsocket6-perl
    libsys-hostname-long-perl
    libwww-perl
    libio-socket-inet6-perl
    libmail-spf-perl
    libsys-syslog-perl
    libcompress-zlib-perl
    libdbi-perl
    libencode-detect-perl
    libio-socket-ssl-perl
    libmail-dkim-perl
    So for Debian 8 it would be:
    Code:
    apt-get install libhtml-parser-perl libhttp-date-perl libnet-dns-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl libsocket6-perl libsys-hostname-long-perl libwww-perl libio-socket-inet6-perl libmail-spf-perl libsys-syslog-perl libdbi-perl libencode-detect-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl libmail-dkim-perl razor libio-socket-ip-perl libnet-patricia-perl
    For Debian 7 it would be:
    Code:
    apt-get install libarchive-tar-perl libhtml-parser-perl libhttp-date-perl libnet-dns-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl libsocket6-perl libsys-hostname-long-perl libwww-perl libio-socket-inet6-perl libmail-spf-perl libsys-syslog-perl libcompress-zlib-perl libdbi-perl libencode-detect-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl libmail-dkim-perl razor libio-socket-ip-perl libcompress-zlib-perl libnet-patricia-perl
    And for Debian 6:
    Code:
    apt-get install libarchive-tar-perl libhtml-parser-perl libnet-dns-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl libsocket6-perl libsys-hostname-long-perl libwww-perl libio-socket-inet6-perl libmail-spf-perl libsys-syslog-perl libcompress-zlib-perl libdbi-perl libencode-detect-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl libmail-dkim-perl razor libcompress-zlib-perl libnet-patricia-perl

    Installing a new Debian 7, I needed to do the line for Debian 8. I guess things are updated for Debian 7 or something.
