Karsten Hopp built a new perl-5.18.4-290.fc20 on 2015-02-17
23:57:37 that Koji believes is successful.
I attempted another install, but the error persists. The F20
repo probably needs to be updated with the new version.
Peter did the update, and the Perl 5.18.4 files are now on the ppc64
F20 master and shadow disks.
Unfortunately, we have a case of "One step forward, one step back:.
Forward: The perl 5.18.4 issue is now resolved.
Backward: A new ppc64 F20 dependency issue.
I select the Mate desktop, and C development tools.
Anaconda is happy enough to reach the point of formatting the disks, and
begin the installation process. "Starting package installation process"
is displayed. I get a new pop-up with:
"glibc-2.18-11.fc20.ppc requires glibc-common = 2.18-11.fc20
It is annoying that this was not caught in the earlier dependency check,
but that is likely an anaconda or packaging issue.
has the following glibc packages:
glibc-2.18-16.fc20.ppc64.rpm 2015-02-24 18:47 4.7M

These match the packages at:
has no glibc packages
As this is no longer a Perl problem, I've mark this bz as closed
(With WORKSFORME as the resolution), and will follow up as required
to get this new problem resolved.
My first guess is we've got another package that needs to be rebuilt
to match the new glibc. I'll try the install later tonight with just
Mate (no C development group) and see what happens.
