  • Using the Perl 5.8.0 included with Redhat 8.0 seems to cause a problem under the same condition of an article being freshened up by freshenup.pl. I believe the line that never returns and hangs slashd (waiting forever for the function to return) is the line $data = `exec` in Slash::Utility::System.pm with the function prog2file. The command is trying to execute index.pl to capture the output for index.shtml Stuff has been written up about this before here [slashcode.com] and and here [slashcode.com] by gasp [slashcode.com] Hopefully someone can include some recommendation in the INSTALL doc of the right Perl to use, as far as compile options go.

    This would be a good place to post the perl -V output of people with broken systems and working systems to have something to compare.

    • None of the core developers are using Redhat 8.0 (nor are any of us using perl 5.8 either I believe).

      • That may be true, but doesn't Open Source work better if it runs? This isn't any flame, just saying that there's no harm in trying to make it easier if possible for people to try out. Maybe the core developers could tell people more specifically what they recommend and it could save someone some frustration. :)
        • I use Redhat 7.2 (which works right out of the box). Anything beyond 7.3 is going to have problems. Redhat is housed with fools for shipping Apache 2.0 with a bunch of beta modules for Apache.
