Freebsd-4.6 and rt/

hi all,

has anyone managed to make rt2 install with freebsd-4.6(.1) ?

I’m encountering plenty of freebsd/perl brain damage in this area, mostly focused around
the CPAN modules somehow wanting perl-5.8 - even trying to upgrade the CPAN bundle
gave me this.

If anyone has any pointers I’d sure like to hear em.
(along with any rtfm urls…)

Thanks!

Adrian

My colleague at Taipei.pm just made a port:

Oh, nice! I’ll run off now and see if its commit-worthy.

Adrian,

Have you succeeded in installing rt-2-0-x with freebsd4.6?

I still have some difficulty to install mod_perl as below when I do ‘make
fixdeps’.

here’s my current problems with the ports.

  • the ‘make install’ didn’t seem to create the pgsql database, create the user,
    create the tables/sequences, grant access.

  • you still need to add the rt magic to the apache config file

  • config.pm is still default.

  • /usr/local/mason wasn’t created by default.

I also had to add DBIx::DBSchema or something along those lines manually -
it wasn’t listed as a dependency, but creating the DB required it (this may
be why make install didn’t do what I thought it should.)

I also am thinking of dumping the rt-specific apache magic in a seperate
config file which I then include from apache.conf .

Other than that, it worked. Yay. :slight_smile:
