Subject: «Can't locate object method "init_INST" via package "PACK001"»

Hello Autrijus, While trying to install JSAN 0.04, I ran into the following: $ perl Makefile.PL Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Warning: prerequisite Class::DBI 0.96 not found. Warning: prerequisite File::Temp 0.14 not found. Can't locate object method "init_INST" via package "PACK001" at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm line 497. # Looks like your test died before it could output anything. Then it dies and of course no Makefile is created. Even the warnings are strange because I actually have Class::DBI 0.96 and File::Temp 0.16. Running it with Devel::SimpleTrace gave some interesting results: $ perl -MDevel::SimpleTrace Makefile.PL Warning: prerequisite Class::DBI 0.96 not found. at ExtUtils::MakeMaker::new(unknown source) at ExtUtils::MakeMaker::WriteMakefile(/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm:58) at Module::Install::Makefile::write(inc/Module/Install/Makefile.pm - /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Module/Install/Makefile.pm:92) at Module::Install::WriteAll::WriteAll(inc/Module/Install/WriteAll.pm - /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Module/Install/WriteAll.pm:30) at main::(Makefile.PL:36) Warning: prerequisite File::Temp 0.14 not found. at ExtUtils::MakeMaker::new(unknown source) at ExtUtils::MakeMaker::WriteMakefile(/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm:58) at Module::Install::Makefile::write(inc/Module/Install/Makefile.pm - /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Module/Install/Makefile.pm:92) at Module::Install::WriteAll::WriteAll(inc/Module/Install/WriteAll.pm - /Library/Perl/5.8.6/Module/Install/WriteAll.pm:30) at main::(Makefile.PL:36) Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Can't locate object method "init_INST" via package "PACK001" at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm line 497. # Looks like your test died before it could output anything. If you look closely at the trace, you can see something strange: the modules are credited with two paths, one in the inc/ directory, one in the /Library directory. Could be fine, except I'm not on Mac OS X, so I don't have /Library. And there is no reason for the presence of two paths in this trace, and I'm quite sure it's not Devel::SimpleTrace fault because it just uses caller(). Following Adam Kennedy's advice, I ran $ perl -d:DProf Makefile.PL $ dprofpp -T >tmon.txt I attach the resulting tmon.txt to this ticket. Platform and software versions: Linux/i386 2.6.8.1 Perl 5.8.5 ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.30 Ask me if you want me to run additionnal tests. Regards

I forgot to note that it segfaults when run with DProf: $ perl -d:DProf Makefile.PL Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Segmentation fault $ echo $? 139 -- Close the world, txEn eht nepO.

Hi. Sorry to say this but this ticket is so old that I can't reproduce exactly what you spotted. As far as I can see, this is an (auto_)include* stuff's brokenness by design, and we still need to do something like excluding XS modules (which easily cause segfault when architecture/version differ) etc. But anyway I close this ticket for now. Thanks.
