Problems during make test

Hi

I am trying to install RT 2.0.11 on a redhat 7.2 system. But I cant get
past the make test of mod_perl.

Everything is ok until make test gets to modules/httpdconf… it just
sits there doing nothing.

downloaded mod_perl is 1.26
downloaded apache is 1.3.23

All help welcome :slight_smile:

Regards from Olav!

I’m just itching to toss in some assistance, since I have just installed
2.0.11 on a RH72 system with much help from this list.

I can say that your error is unique and that you should not be getting that
error if you have normal hardware and a normal install process. My 'normal’
install process is:

  • Install RH7.2 as Server with NO addons (not even web)
  • DL latest source tarballs of Apache and Mod_Perl to your tmp dir
  • Extract both and then compile Mod_Perl using the apache source (RTFM)
  • Compile Apache after your done
  • Install mysql and test it
  • Make sure both are setup in your /etc/rc.d/init.d so they are loading
  • Extract rt and then edit the makefile
  • Make your users/groups that are specified in the Makefile/Apache config
  • Run fixdeps
  • When asked make sure you do manual config and give it lots of mirror sites
  • If CPAN tries to update Perl just break out with a ctl-c, it’s not required
  • If some modules don’t install try a manual CPAN command
    (under RH72 I had to perl -MCPAN -e ‘install Apache::DBI’)
  • Once everything is happy you should be able to install RT and get on to the
    hard part of the install… >:)

Provide more info about the make test error.

Copy & paste perhaps?

No errors…nothing.
Just hangs there appearently doing nothing.
Can I uninstall/remove Perl and Apache and install them from scratch?

You are making it very hard for anybody to give you some help.

WHy not try compiling mod_perl and apache yourself. The RT documentation
suggests a way to compile mod_perl with the correct settings.

Thats exactly what I’m trying to do. I dont need my current apache and
perl installation for anything. I am not using them. So I thought it
would make sence to wipe them out of the system and start fresh when
installing RT.

Running “make” on mod_perl goes just fine, but when I run “make test” it
gets to /modules/httpdconf and just sits there. I only use cvs and ftp
and isdn for surfing at the moment. So I can just send my existing
mod_perl and apache installation down the tubes if that would help.

Tried ignoring make test hang and simply continue with make install and
everything else?

Might be a long shoot, but still…
