heads up and fyi folks...

CentOS 4 latest...
SpamAssassin version 3.3.1
  running on Perl version 5.8.8


i noticed on a centos 4 box after doing a manual yum update and getting 2
updated perl packages from rpmforge

again, just a heads up as rpmforge has been rock solid for us for years so
we are no bashing

spamassassin would not restart after the updates....

spamd: Oct 27 22:32:01.340 [27493] warn: netset: cannot include
as it has already been included

spamd: Oct 27 22:32:01.340 [27493] error: spamd: aborting due to add_cidr

spamd: spamd: aborting due to add_cidr error

spamassassin: spamd startup failed

of course, there was no such network include in the local.cf file as it is

the fix for me was to

# grep  perl-NetAddr-IP /var/log/yum.log

rpm -e --nodeps perl-NetAddr-IP

yum localinstall perl-NetAddr-IP-4.033-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm

service spamassassin restart

again, just a heads up...
