Problems Installing the Blob Plugin?

posted by Cliff on 07:40 AM March 2nd, 2004   Printer-friendly   Email story
Has anyone else had problems with installing the Blob plugin? I installed the plugin without problems, but on trying to access, it failed. The log suggests that the version of Bundle::Slash is out of date. Updating Bundle::Slash goes okay until it gets to the Apache::Test module when it fails. Any advice gratefully received! Thanks.

  • I haven't seen this exact problem but if Apache::Test is really the problem, force install that sucker. It always fails for me too. See the paragraph headed "Apache::Test and Apache::Cookie" in the latest INSTALL file, for details.
  • I'm not sue about most other people...but I have installed slash lately several times...and each time bundle slash craps out on appache test...the issue as far as I can tell is that Apache::Test needs to do its perl Makefile.PL and make commands from root and then run the make test command without root privileges...and finally run the make install (after the make test passes) from root once again...I know it sounds crazy but was the only way I can get the Apache::Test to install...Hope this helps in some wa
    • Yep. This is exactly the problem I remember. I don't know why they just can't start up their tests without root privs using su. Maybe someone might provide a patch to that, soon. If not, maybe I will if I can ever find a gap in my "copious free time" (hah!) to do so.
  • Fails, because you're running as root, or are su'd to root. I had this exact problem when I converted my site at home to slash 2.2.6 [] and pudge figured it out for me.

    Just force it - it will work after that.
