QueryBuilder::Tree error

Hello all!

We had RT 3.4.5 working until yesterday, after a
system update. Now we have this error when going to
the Search tickets page:
Can’t locate object method “new” via package
"RT::Interface::Web::QueryBuilder::Tree" at
/opt/rt3/share/html/Search/Build.html line 288.

I searched around this mail list and found several
people with the same problem, apparently something to
do with perl and Tree::Simple module or Scalar::Util
module.
Is there a solution for this?
Many thanks in advance…

my system:
fedora 4
kernel-2.6.16-1.2108_FC4
perl-5.8.6-24

I tryed to update Tree::Simple and I was getting an
error so I re-installed perl CPAN, Scalar::Util and
Tree::Simple, this worked without any errors.
So you say that now if I re-install everything it
should work… ok, going to try it, after I’ll let you
know if it worked…

I tryed to update Tree::Simple and I was getting an
error so I re-installed perl CPAN, Scalar::Util and
Tree::Simple, this worked without any errors.

Tree::Simple seems to be the key to the problem, but I found that I had to
physically delete it from the /usr/lib/perl… directory tree and then use
CPAN to reinstalling it. I think once you have a version of that module which
doesn’t require weak references, RT will install and run cleanly.

So you say that now if I re-install everything it
should work… ok, going to try it, after I’ll let you
know if it worked…

Good luck!

If the error you see is about weaken that is not available in
Scalar::Util then you want do next things:

  1. reinstall Scalar::Util module from sources
  2. check that perl and libperl are compiled with the same params

Also, do you use mod_perl?On 5/16/06, Pedro Ferreira pedro_nf@yahoo.com wrote:

I found this script to delete perl modules, don’t
remmember where, sorry for the credits of the
programmer…

[root@guincho perl-utils]# more perl-remove-module.pm

-begin of file------------------------------------

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use ExtUtils::Packlist;
use ExtUtils::Installed;

$ARGV[0] or die “Usage: $0 Module::Name\n”;

my $mod = $ARGV[0];

my $inst = ExtUtils::Installed->new();

foreach my $item (sort($inst->files($mod))) {
         print "removing $item\n";
         unlink $item;
      }

 my $packfile =

$inst->packlist($mod)->packlist_file();
print “removing $packfile\n”;
unlink $packfile;

yes, I use mod_perl
I installed perl and libperl from rpm’s so I hope they
are compiled with same params… :wink:

no way, it doesn’t work!!!
I removed Tree::Simple and Scalar::Util
I re-installed it using perl CPAN

I always get the error:

Can’t locate object method “new” via package
"RT::Interface::Web::QueryBuilder::Tree" at
/opt/rt3/share/html/Search/Build.html line 288.

and

Undefined subroutine &Scalar::Util::weaken called at
/opt/rt3/lib/RT/Action/Generic.pm line 108.

The first error is in Tickets and the second one is in

I installed mod_perl using yum (automaticaly gets the
rpm package from a list of mirrors) and I’m not in the
mood to recompile it…

If someone from RT is ‘hearing’ me, don’t you have any
plans to remove this problem from your code, I guess
it will not be too difficult, replace a couple of
functions to something compatible with the latest
version…? I’m not a perl expert so I can’t help
here… but we are evaluating RT to start using it and
this problem is a major drawback…— Scott Courtney scott@4th.com wrote:

It’s not problem in RT code. it’s problem of your distro. We couldn’t
do anything from RT code to fix this.

Use FastCGI or install perl/mod_perl from SRPMs.On 5/19/06, Pedro Ferreira pedro_nf@yahoo.com wrote:

do you believe in miracles?
on friday I re-installed Tree::Simple and
Scalar::Util, I re-started the apache server but still
the same error… this morning, without a reboot or a
apache restart RT is working fine!
I guess there must be some temporary buffer for perl
web transactions that takes a while to reset…?!?
Well, anyway now it looks ok and working!
