Subject: use of unitialized value in split
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 380b
I'm getting the error message 'Use of uninitialized value in split at / usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi/Sys/Syslog.pm line 123' after upgrading from Sys::Syslog 0.16 to 0.18. This happens when trying to start postgrey 1.27 ( http://isg.ee.ethz.ch/ tools/postgrey/ ) running under SuSE 10.1 using the following command line: '/sbin/postgrey/postgrey -d --inet=10023'

Can you try the attached patch and confirm me that it silents the warning? Show quoted text

I took a very quick look but couldn't find where it calls Sys::Syslog. I guess postgrey is using a module that uses Sys::Syslog and strangely pass it an undefined value. -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.

Hi Sébastien, Your patch does silence the warning, thank you for your quick reply. Unfortunately postgrey will still not keep running after starting it. But this will definitely be something to contact its author about :-) Marcus Show quoted text

Do you mean that postgrey 1.27 can't run with Sys::Syslog 0.18 while it did with previous versions? Did you upgrade any other modules or depending software apart from Sys::Syslog? -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.

Hi Sébastien, I did try a completely new installation of postgrey 1.27. When I ran into the first problem trying to start it, I found a google answer referring to a problem im Syslog 0.16. So I decided to upgrade to 0.18 to see if this fixes the problems. Well, it did not but in the meantime I managed to get postgrey running. There were some other prerequisites (user rights) missing that the program was not very talkative about. Greetings Marcus Show quoted text

Yes, Sys::Syslog 0.16 was wrong and broke several software. Version 0.17 corrected the problem. Show quoted text

Ok, so that's good news then. -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.
