Subject: Tests hang on some perls
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 509b
Among my smokers I have several perls for which the tests hang. I started debugging and found the processes hang in Admin.pm asking Show quoted text
>> 1. Module::Install::RPM >> 2. Module::Install::WriteAll >>Multiple extensions found for method 'WriteAll':
And there it sits. Note that it is NOT asking this on STDERR, so the output is never seen by a tester. The fact that the matrix shows so many PASS and hardly FAILs may be because all fails are just swallowed by harvesters for hanging jobs. Suggestions?

This is probably caused by Module::Install automatically loading any installed extensions. If any extension has some kind of critical bug, once installed it's quite probably going to screw over Module::Install. I'm current investigating the removal of this automated loading of all extensions. Adam K On 11 September 2010 13:44, Andreas Koenig via RT <bug-Module-Install@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
