Errors with perl 5.6


#1

I captured the wrong email address for RT, so if I’ve been spamming
someone for the last few days, I apologize. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m using perl 5.6 w/mod_perl 1.24 and apache 1.3.12, and apache actually
segfaults when I load up the WebRT page. Pretty sexy, I don’t think I’ve
ever seen apache sig11 before.

When trying to get it up and running, I had to comment out the call to
exit() to get apache to start. It was complaining that:

[Thu Jun 8 14:28:12 2000] [error] Apache->exit called without setting
Apache->request! at /usr/local/rt2/etc/config.pm line 238.

Also, Tobix, I noticed that in the top of config.pm, you complained about
syslog and having to redo the h2ph stuff - I have had that problem too. It
seems endemic to red hat’s perl installation, which in turn seems to not
want to work with anything from CPAN.

It’s all very annoying. :slight_smile: Anyone else running with perl 5.6, or has
anyone else seen apache segfault? I reallllly don’t want to have to sift
through an apache coredump.

Thanks,

Weren’t we not warned to NOT use perl 5.6 by Tobix himeself?
I personally haven’t had any trouble installing perl modules
from cpan using the default perl install on RHS 6.2 …

That’s very possible, I’ll check the archives… Hmm… the search is
offline… My cursory examination of the last three months doesn’t show it,
but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. Do you remember why?

In any case, 5.6 isn’t going to go away, it’s the real perl. :slight_smile:

And, try to install a CVS version of the gimp with the perl extentions
using a stock red hat install and you’ll see what I mean. I’m not a perl
expert by any means, so I usually just quit poking at it and install a new
perl (which always fixes things.)

5.6 ain’t stable yet. It really isn’t.

and mod_perl with 5.6 sure as hell isn’t ready for production.

Anyway, I’ve gotta go run and catch a plane to vienna.
See you all soon,

The apache->exit thing is a bug either tobias or i introduced in the past few
days. sorry about that.On Thu, Jun 08, 2000 at 04:10:00PM -0400, Blue wrote:

I’m using perl 5.6 w/mod_perl 1.24 and apache 1.3.12, and apache actually
segfaults when I load up the WebRT page. Pretty sexy, I don’t think I’ve
ever seen apache sig11 before.

It always does with mod_perl. It might be something wrong with webmux.pl.
Try checking the logs (including the RT log).

[Thu Jun 8 14:28:12 2000] [error] Apache->exit called without setting
Apache->request! at /usr/local/rt2/etc/config.pm line 238.

In my config.pm, line 238 is inside the die sub. It should write some
logs to the rtlog. The rtlog is either !!RT_LOGFILE!! or whatever you set
up in the Makefile - dependent on how new your version of RT2 is (did you
pick it up from the CVS?) :slight_smile:

It’s all very annoying. :slight_smile: Anyone else running with perl 5.6, or has
anyone else seen apache segfault? I reallllly don’t want to have to sift
through an apache coredump.

I’m running perl 5.6.0 - troubles all the way. I’d recommend anyone to
wait for 5.6.1. I also skipped mod_perl, I didn’t like the Apache to
coredump :slight_smile:

will do… actually, anything i serve w/mod_perl enabled seems to crash
it, now… whudda pain in the ass! i just recompiled everything with large
file support, etc, etc, and sent a stack trace to the mod_peril :slight_smile:
kids… mebbe they’ll work some funky magic on it.

yes, and, that’s where it is in mine, too… it’s the call to exit()… did
you mean for that to be Apache::exit() or perl::exit? if you load it under
mod_peril, it assumes Apache::exit().

heh… darnit… i guess i just need to downlevel this entire
environment… all of the rt2 web pages just come up showing code instead
of parsing the HTML…

You’re lucky, when I tried installing mod_perl, it crashed even without
and perl handlers at all.

I have no clue about webmux.pl, I’m using CGI. If you also would like to
run CGI, I might give you a snapshot of my rtmux.pl. I’ve been too lazy
(or had too little time) to update the template (the rtmux.pl in the CVS).

Then Apache isn’t configurated right. It just serves the template instead
of parsing it (running the perlhandler).
