Error messages on /var/log/messages pointing to File.pm

hi lists,

m getting some error messages in my syslog. m not really sure what i missed
but rt seems to be working pretty well as of the moment. maybe some of you
may have experienced these errors. m relatively new to the list but i have
been using rt since the early release of version3.

thanks again for your help. I’ve also attached the rt configuration
