RT RPM for Mandriva?

I’ve been investigating ticket tracking applications lately and I’d like to
evaluate this one a little further. Since there doesn’t seem to be a
pre-packaged mandriva install, I had tried my luck with the manual install
method. I ran into what seems to be a fairly common problem with fixdeps
judging by the mailing list archives. So I figured I’d pause and see if
anyone has either made, or knows where a mandriva rpm package for RT can be
found.

If not I’ll go back to solving the technical problems, but I’m hoping theres a
simpler way right now actually. So, anyone heard of a Mandrake RPM for this?

Well, I’m on Mandrake 10.1 official and building manually. No fixdeps
problem for me.

Well… since that means you have a different set of RPMs installed than I do,
I’m afraid that isn’t going to help me much :slight_smile: I’m running on LE 2005 myself
right now and definately have some fixdeps problems. I can solve them of
course, but I really don’t feel like going through all the various motions to
tell you the truth. If I can find an RPM cool, otherwise I’ll probably move
onto a less complicated app.

Since I can’t seem to locate an RPM for Mandriva, I guess its back to the
harder way. As I mentioned I’m having trouble at fixdeps, which I understand
isn’t an RT issue, but rather a perl issue. For some reason which I haven’t
yet been able to figure out, fixdeps isn’t installing the missing CPAN
modules as it should.

Currently I’m missing the following:
MASON dependencies:
Params::Validate 0.02…MISSING
HTML::Mason 1.23…MISSING
Apache::Session 1.53…MISSING
XML::RSS 1.05…MISSING
HTTP::Server::Simple::Mason 0.09…MISSING
CORE dependencies:
DBIx::SearchBuilder 1.26…MISSING
Log::Dispatch 2.0…MISSING

I’ve already run perl -MCPAN - e shell without trouble, but fixdeps refuses to
install those missing modules. If I try to install them manually I get the
same problem of course. I’ve never messed with perl before so I’m not even
sure what I’m looking at when I review the mountain of text that results from
"perl -MCPAN -e ‘install HTML::Mason’".

The final bit of it simply says
"1 test skipped.
Failed 27/28 test scripts, 3.57% okay. 92/92 subtests failed, 0.00% okay.
make: *** [test] Error 255
/usr/bin/make test – NOT OK
Running make install
make test had returned bad status, won’t install without force"

reading back up through the text shows that there was a problem early on, but
I don’t know enough to decipher what that problem is exactly.

So… can anyone point me in the right direction here? What should I be
looking for to correct whatever this problem is?

I’m running Mandriva LE 2005 with perl-5.8.6-6.1.102mdk installed. Thanks for
any hints here.---------- Forwarded Message ----------

To start off, sorry about the html email, our web email client doens’t allow us to switch to plain text (and I’m not at work right now).

As for running RT on Mandriva, I’m currently running RT3.4.2 on Mandriva LE2005 (Apache2 and FastCGI). Here’s what I’ve done to get things working. Using a combo of Mandriva “main” and “contrib” perl rpms and then finishing things with CPAN modules then a standard install of RT (no RPM for that I’m aware of either).

Here are links to the RPM versions of all your missing modules (minus the SearchBuilder which you can get off CPAN).

You might need some deps for these RPMs but if you have URPM configured with a Contrib and Main source, you’ll be fine.

Reply if you have any more questions.
