Postgres, Perl 5.8.1, RT 3.0.6 install woes

So, I take it I need to rebuild PostgreSQL and probably DBD::Pg, right?

Any idea on the second error? This is Solaris 7 and syslogd is of course
running.

Are the myriad requisite modules for RT tested to work properly with
Perl 5.8.1? If not, what is the recommended version of Perl to use at
this point?

Probably. It couldn’t hurt :^)

Log::Dispatch::Syslog failed in a different creative way on Solaris
under 5.8.0. Simplest workaround is to disable LogToSyslog in your
RT_SiteConfig, and log to file instead.

I don’t know how much testing has been done under 5.8.1; 5.8.0
is generally known to work pretty well.

I wouldn’t count on it. Read the perldetla for 5.8.1 and pay
particular attention to the multi-byte (unicode) support changes.
Things were silently done behind the scenes in 5.8.0 are no longer
done in 5.8.1. I’m sure 5.8.0 will work, as that’s what I use. I
haven’t upgraded to 5.8.1 just yet.

The myriad requisite modules are still required. And we’ve caught a
couple of issues with fixes in 5.8.1 that don’t yet play well with RT.
We expect to release an updated version of RT within the next several weeks.
