Amaviis will not install


Looks lik amavis is broken or at least it will not install. It has the message that IO::Stringy is needed.

I used cpan to install IO::Stringy, but could still not install amavis. Anyone have any ideas of how I could install amavis

Greg Ennis


dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools
dnf install perl-IO-stringy

although I found mine wants to install perl-IO-string when I just do this:

[root@rocky ~]# dnf install amavis

Is this ok [y/N]: 

you may also want to install epel:

dnf install epel-release

since some of the dependencies above come from that repo as well. Maybe enable appstream repo as well if you haven’t done this already.

I feel pretty stupiid… I thought I had power tools acttive. Thanski so much for taking the time to help me. Your soultion worked perfectly!!!
