Rt 3.4.4 + rtfm 2.0.4

Sorry for the cross-post I wasn’t sure which list handled RTFM user issues.
I have installed RTFM 2.04 per the instructions and I have two problems.
I’ve seen this in the archive and on Google but have not seen a
resolution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. RTFM does not show up in the left column. Screen shots seem to
    indicate this should happen.
  2. if I access /rt/RTFM directly I get the following error; probably a
    symptom of #1?

error: Can’t locate object method “new” via package
"RT::FM::ArticleCollection" (perhaps you forgot to load
"RT::FM::ArticleCollection"?) at
/opt/rt3/share/html/RTFM/Elements/NewestArticles line 60.

No one has any clue on this?? Why is there such poor documentation on
RTFM and RTIM??

I suspect you’re running into one of the issues with Mason 1.30 or 1.31.
I’d recommend backing down to 1.28. Also, give RTFM 2.1.x a shot.

And finding Mason was no walk in the park either; I ended up getting
it via wget --no-parent -l0 -r http://search.cpan.org/src/DROLSKY/HTML-Mason-1.28

and then compiling it manually. I believe I had to use CPAN to install
one or two prerequisites as well.

I can not compile this. When I ‘make’ I get the following:

make: *** No rule to make target lib/Apache/index.html?C=M', needed bypm_to_blib’. Stop.

Is there some way to tell CPAN to get an older version?

I have a thought that’s been rumbling around in my head that it would
be a good idea to collect best-practice ideas and tools for building
software systems based on other people’s components. Clearly, the
leverage you gain from using OPC has some very specific pinch points,
and I seem to notice different ones on different projects.

Since you’re doing that already, you seem a good person of whom to
inquire: is anyone already digging at the spot marked X?

Ok, I backed down to 1.28 and now I get the following error starting
httpd:

[Fri Aug 26 10:12:37 2005] [warn] FastCGI: server
"/opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi" restarted (pid 16314)

The following parameter was passed in the call to
HTML::Mason::CGIHandler->new() but was not listed in the validation
options: comp_root

Compilation failed in require at /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi line
52.

FWIW it also happens with RT352

Going back to 1.3101 Fixes this error. Is there any way to have RT not
pass that param? I’m Perl illiterate but I’ve been looking all the same.
