The precheck tool fails with the following exception:

"RPMs check failed on hosts below. perl-NetAddr-IP should be installed on the hosts with spamassassin."

Or, upgrading to POA 5.5 fails with this exception:

"perl(NetAddr::IP) >= 4.000 is needed by perl-Mail-SpamAssassin-%version%.pem.i386"


There is no "perl(NetAddr::IP)" RPM installed on the qmail node.


  1. Download "perl-NetAddr-IP" on the qmail host where the problem occurred:
  2. Run the following command:
    rpm -Uhv perl-NetAddr-IP-4.027-1.i386.rpm to install rpm.

You can run the following one-liner to make the changes:
rpm -Uhv
