Item8801: Installer does not flag failed dependency
Current State: Confirmed
Released In: n/a
Target Release: n/a
Applies To: Engine
Installation log file shows a failing dependency, but the installation continues:
Checking dependency on BerkeleyDB....
*** DBCacheContrib depends on cpan package BerkeleyDB >=0
which is described as "Recommended for sites with many topics. Available from [[http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/dist/BerkeleyDB][CPAN]]"
But when I tried to find it I got this error:
Can't locate BerkeleyDB.pm
I will keep a backup of any files I overwrite.Archive has already been unpacked.
### Installation finished ###
and finally even reports:
Installer ran without errors
I would expect to see an error here.

You are right. This report is almost unreadable, in desperate need of love & care.
Other than that DBCacheContrib
BerkeleyDB it is only optional
... and flagged experimental.
