Hi, POE::Component::SmokeBox::Backend which minismokebox uses behind the scenes to fork the 'smoker' process sanctifies the environment for the forked process. <snip> my $sanctify = Env::Sanctify->sanctify( env => $self->{env}, sanctify => [ '^POE_', '^PERL5_SMOKEBOX', '^HARNESS_', '^(PERL5LIB|TAP_VERSION|TEST_VERBOSE)$', '^AUTHOR_TESTING$', '^PERL_TEST', ] ); </snip> This was to stop possible perl related environment variables that applied to the perl that was controlling the smoker process leaking into the smoker environment. Luckily, I did consider that one might need to tailor the smoker environment. Unfortunately, I didn't add this as a configuration option to minismokebox. I've just uploaded version 0.46 which allows one to add environment variables to the configuration file that are passed to the forked smoker process.

Chris, Thanks for the update. I'm sorry to say that with 0.46 I get the same error: /usr/bin/perl5.10.0 perl/bin/minismokebox --perl /usr/bin/perl5.10.0 --backend CPAN::Reporter --url ftp://cpan.hexten.net/ Running minismokebox with options: perl /usr/bin/perl backend CPAN::Reporter url ftp://cpan.hexten.net/ The specified perl '/usr/bin/perl' does not have backend 'CPAN::Reporter' installed, aborting minismokebox started at: Thu May 26 11:14:54 2011 minismokebox finished at: Thu May 26 11:14:54 2011 minismokebox ran for: 0 seconds minismokebox tot jobs: 0 minismokebox avg run: 0 seconds minismokebox min run: 0 seconds minismokebox max run: 0 seconds Use of uninitialized value in hash element at /Users/nigel/perl/lib/perl5/site_perl/App/SmokeBox/Mini.pm line 242.

I added a test for the behaviour and if PERL5LIB is specified in the configuration file it definitely gets set when the backend is forked. In the minismokebox configuration something like: [ENVIRONMENT] PERL5LIB=/some/path/here:/and/another/one Alternatively I have added the --perlenv switch to minismokebox itself. If you specify this it will pass PERL5LIB through if it exists in the environment when minismokebox is run.

My mistake - the fix does work, thanks. I missed that the 0.50 installation failed because of RT68608.

Please add LDFLAGS and LDDFLAGS to get around the OS/X problem documented at http://perlnews.org/2011/04/dealing-with-xcode-4-and-cpan-breakage/#comment-402

Hi, Can I just check what you want. I'm reading this as: "Can you add LDFLAGS and LDDLFLAGS to the environment variables that are removed from the environment that smoker processes run in" Can you confirm this is your intention ? Many thanks. -- Chris Williams aka BinGOs PGP ID 0x4658671F http://www.gumbynet.org.uk ==========================

No - the opposite, can you please ensure that they are passed though. If they are already then no action is needed. Thanks, -Nigel
