slash 2.0.0-pre3 Released

posted by pudge on 04:45 PM April 25th, 2001   Printer-friendly   Email story
Sorry to all of you who just downloaded 2.0.0-pre2; thanks to all of you who helped us crush the bugs in that release! There were some bad ones (nothing major, just enough to make the site not work ... ) so we decided to do one more prerelease. This fixed syntax errors, bad method calls, and (hopefully) the Makefile for FreeBSD.

So again, we hope to release 2.0.0 next week. Check this out, let us know what breaks by submitting bugs on SourceForge, and we'll do this. Download the latest via FTP or HTTP, and read the change log below.

  • Yes, the Makefile finally works on FreeBSD 4.3! And after upgrading, everything works fine.

    Congrats guys!


    It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
  • I am trying to install Slash on a Compaq Tru64 4.0 (aka Digital Unix) system and I am getting a lot of errors because of the wild use of options that are peculiar of GNU tools (for example -maxdepth in find, etc.).

    I realize GNU fileutils are much cooler, but maybe it's not a good idea to stop portability already in the Makefile.

    Unfortunately I can't join the choire of praise:-) Slash::Bundle doesn't install XML::Parser properly (2.30) and after installation of 2.29 I still have a problem starting apache which doesn't like SlashVirtualUser in the conf. I'm running out of ideas now ... :-( (and patience).
  • This is not a Slash problem: in order to install (or CPAN-install) XML::Parser you need the expat library [] installed. There are packages available for major Linux distributions or you can download and install it easily. Then build your XML::Parser [], then Slash.

    For Slash, is more a problem of better explaining it in INSTALL.

  • How could it be explained better?
  • Yeah, the CPAN bundles are kind of a problem. Expat needs to be installed manually (at least on my system). But, with a little care you can get all the bundles to install.

    It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
  • What about moving REQUIREMENTS to the top of the INSTALL file?

  • We tried that. People wouldn't read through to the instructions.

    And I mean, really, right in the first section it says where to read for the requirements. I mean, I want to be helpful, but if someone cannot find the REQUIREMENTS section, it is only because they didn't read anything. And if they don't read anything, there is nothing we can do to the docs to make any difference.
