At apache start - Can't locate object method "boot" via package "mod_perl"

Here’s one for you folks. I’m trying to get rt running on Gentoo. I might be
needing a module. I’m using apache 2 with perl 1.99 and mysql. This error
message is delivered when trying to start apache.

**This is from apache2/error_log so you know a bit more about what’s going on:

I confirmed that all the files mentioned are where they claim to be. I start
apache2 with the “-D PERL” option. I’m not sure what else to tell you folks,
I’ve been working on this furiously for a few days now, but don’t know much
about perl.

Somebody yesterday said mod_perl wasn’t loaded.
I got the same error with the default Apache 2 web server in RedHat9.
Some of the CPAN scripts made tests for Apache 1.3 also, so it was just not worth it to me. Do you really need Apache 2.0?

If you want it done right you have to compile it yourself!

I believe the path of least resistance is

Apache 1.3.27 http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd
mod_perl 1.27 http://perl.apache.org/dist

according to instructions here: http://perl.apache.org/docs/1.0/guide/getwet.html

This works!

Apache::Constants is, I believe, mod_perl 1 only.

Apache::Constants is, I believe, mod_perl 1 only.

I’m running mod_perl 1.99.

Hmmm…
I’d rather get what I have now working. I’ve put to much time into it. The
readme indicates that it should work. I have another Gentoo machine I’m trying
to get that combination on, but I’m having a dickens of a time figuring out how
to get all the modules. It isn’t working even as smoothly.

I might go back yet though.

mod_perl 1.99 should be considered “pre-2” as far as I’ve understood,
and doesn’t qualify as “mod_perl 1”.

So if I run that I should configure with perl2 at install?

Yes, although my experience w Freebsd 4.7/apache 2.045/modperl1.99 & rt3.01 sent back to apache 1.37 & mod perl 1. The last combo worked as per the RT documentation without all the various Location and Directory Mason hacks required with Apache 2 and the modperl 1.99 (almost 2)

I guess I’m convinced, now I need to go clean up for a new run on installation
and configuration.

Thanks, josiah
