Question about RTIR installation. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

Hi, all.

I’m trying to get RTIR running for a demonstration and I’ve run into a few
problems.

I’ve installed RT 3.4.2 on Ubuntu 5.10 using the package listed in the RT
Wiki here: http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?UbuntuInstallGuide Next,
I downloaded the current RTIR version and tried to install it. I had to
make a few changes in the Makefile and install a few more perl modules.
Make file changes included the following. (Note that security is not an
issue at this time as it’s only a demo.)

This is the group that all of the installed files will be chgrp’ed to.

RTGROUP = root

User which should own rt binaries.

BIN_OWNER = root
RT_ROOT = /usr/share/request-tracker3.4/
RT_HTML_PATH = $(RT_ROOT)/html
RT_SBIN_PATH = /usr/sbin
DBA = root
RTIR_CONFIG_FILE = /etc/request-tracker3.4/RTIR_Config.pm
TAG = rtir-1-0-5rc1

I’ve now reached the point where I can bring up and log into RTIR and I can
create an incident, but I get an error when I try to use most functions in
RTIR as follows. If I click on “Incidents”, “Search” under “Incidents”,
“Incident Reports”, “Bulk Reject” or “Blocks”, I only get:

error: too many arguments at

Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem??? Did I make a mistake in the
Makefile?
