install Bundle::Slash doesn't like MySql 3.23.47

posted by Krow on 07:52 AM February 5th, 2002   Printer-friendly   Email story
please please help me with this problem, i've been trying to get slash up for a month now... mysql works 3.23.47, install-slashsite works, but when i do a install Bundle::Slash from cpan, it doesn't like my version of mysql, the make test on mysql-mysql-modules, it says, You seem to be running MySQL version ... This version of MySQL is suitable for MySQL 3.22 and later only. But I am running 3.23.47

  • How did you install mySQL? Is it possible you did a source install but still have an RPM or other kind of package install sitting around? Perhaps it is picking up on those old libs lying around.

    That msql-mysql-modules problem is an old and ugly one, but not that critical.

    It's a bug in the CPAN module... I don't remember what version of the module is the one Slash use, but it's pretty old. I remember I almost broke my head against a wall when I tried to install it too, and after various tweaks, I figured out that the problem was that in the test process (when it breaks), the module tries to call an invalid function (I don't know if something changed in MySQL, but the point is that it was a silly command ruining the whole thing).

    If that's the only apparent problem with your Slash installation, I think you can just ignore it. I did so, and I've got Slash running smoothly.

    I upgraded my CPAN version, and installed Bundle::Slash several times until the ONLY problem it reported was with the msql-mysql-modules... then I downloaded the last version of that module and installed it manually.

    • Yes, that module is a pain, but you can install it. I usually have to do it by hand, not by CPAN.

      It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
