DEV dependencies

Hello All

I searched the archives and didnt find my answer so I hope I am not repeating anything.

My question is: How dependant is RT on the DEV dependencies listed in the output of the testdeps target?

In the environment where I’ll be running RT, we are using a semi-homegrown host configuration system. I cannot install anything using cpan. This has not been a problem for most things. cpan2rpm or cpanflute2 have been very useful for creating and cataloging rpms into our system. However, WWW-Mechanize has some dependencies that I am having trouble getting around.

I have a working configuration area and was able to use it to install an RT instance on my local machine but I had to ‘unrequire’ the Mechanize module. Everything seems to be working fine, but since this is merely a poc installation and it isnt really get hit with requests, I wanted to get an idea of what I am likely screwing up by not installing Mechanize.

Thanks

It /Seems/ to be just used for the testing, atleast in 3.2

rt3-1 local/rt# grep -r Mechanize *
lib/t/03web.pl:use WWW::Mechanize;
lib/t/03web.pl:my $agent = WWW::Mechanize->new();
lib/t/03web.pl.in:use WWW::Mechanize;
lib/t/03web.pl.in:my $agent = WWW::Mechanize->new();
rt3-1 local/rt#

Matt.

I installed RT-3.4.1 on my desktop box over the weekend, so I could
have a working installation I could fool around with without
jeopardizing my work’s one. In doing so, I installed a lot of those
perl dependencies with checkinstall, so I have debian packages:
libapache-test-perl_1.21-1_i386.deb
libtext-template-perl_1.44-1_i386.deb
libdbix-searchbuilder-perl_1.22-1_i386.deb
libtest-longstring-perl_0.07-1_i386.deb
libwww-mechanize-perl_1.12-1_i386.deb
libtree-simple-perl_1.14-1_i386.deb
rt_3.4.1-1_i386.deb
libcache-simple-timedexpiry-perl_0.23-1_i386.deb
libtest-www-mechanize-perl_1.04-1_i386.deb
libmodule-versions-report-perl_1.02-1_i386.deb
lib-module-refresh-perl_0.05-1_i386.deb
libmime-tools-perl_5.417-1_i386.deb
libhtml-scrubber-perl_0.08-1_i386.deb
libbundle-www-mechanize-shell-perl_0.29-1_i386.deb
libbundle-tree-simple-perl_0.01-1_i386.deb
If anyone wants them, I’ll make them available. If it matters, they
were built on an Athlon XP running Ubuntu Linux (warty).

So did you install your 3.4.1 deb from
http://www.jadevine.org.uk/request-tracker/ or did you build it?

I am running on sarge from jadevine without any issues or special
packages (apache2+fastcgi). We are going off topic for this thread…

I built it.

(I’m probably breaking the thread with this message. Sorry –
it’s the result of ISP-originating email troubles.)
