Subject: Unable to install Module::Build 0.2801 in perl 5.8.0 on RH9 Linux upgraded with Fedora Legacy packages
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 5.8k
NOTE: Please see the bottom for "perl -v" and "uname -a" output. I have a stock RedHat 9 Linux (Shrike) system installed as a VMWare VM in VMWare Server Beta 2. The system RPMs have been updated from the fedoralegacy.org update site using "yum". The Perl RPM has been updated as part of that process. The Perl RPMs are as follows: perl-5.8.0-90.0.13.legacy perl-CGI-2.81-90.0.13.legacy perl-CPAN-1.61-90.0.13.legacy perl-DateManip-5.40-30 perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 perl-DBD-Pg-1.21-2 perl-DB_File-1.804-90.0.13.legacy perl-DBI-1.32-5.1.legacy perl-Filter-1.29-3 perl-HTML-Parser-3.26-17 perl-HTML-Tagset-3.03-28 perl-libwww-perl-5.65-6 perl-libxml-enno-1.02-29 perl-libxml-perl-0.07-28 perl-Parse-Yapp-1.05-30 perl-URI-1.21-7 perl-XML-Dumper-0.4-25 perl-XML-Encoding-1.01-23 perl-XML-Grove-0.46alpha-25 perl-XML-Parser-2.31-15 perl-XML-Twig-3.09-3 I'm unable to install Module::Build using CPAN on this system, and it appears there is some discrepencancy in the Perl config information.

That causes the _perl_is_same function in Module::Build::Base.pm to fail, preventing the module from installing. Do you have any ideas why the truncation/formatting problem is occuring and how to fix it?

Hi Greg, The part about weird `uname` values, etc. are vaguely reminiscent of some previous issues I've seen on RH systems related to locales. Can you try setting your "LANG" and "LC_ALL" environment variables to "C" and trying again? -Ken

Hi Ken, Thanks for the quick reply. You are correct, and your comment jogged my memory. I think I ran into this problem with Perl on another RH9 machine a few years back, because I found this in my .bash_profile there: unset LANG I did the same thing on the new RH9/VMware installation, and Module::Build installs fine now. I can also try it again with "LANG=C" if you think that's necessary. Regards, Greg Larkin

Great. Show quoted text

Nope, that shouldn't be necessary - that's equivalent to having no LANG setting at all. -Ken
