RT2 Alpha 4


#1

I’m proud to announce the release of RT2 Alpha 4. (tagged as RT 1.3.41).

This release features signficant stabilization relative to alpha 3.
A full CLI admin tool has been written. ACLs are now enforced throughout
the system. Various things have been prettified. It just generally
works much better than alpha 3 did.

If you’re the daring sort, you can suck down the release from

ftp://ftp.fsck.com/pub/rt/devel/

and play around.

If you want to see what’s still on our todo list for 2.0, check out

database) at http://fsck.com/rt2/NoAuth/Buglist.html

    Thanks,
    Jesse

I look forward to trying it out, and I really dig the automated-CPAN
trick for getting Perl modules installed… but I can’t seem to get
HTML::Mason to install. Is that going to hold up everything, or should I
proceed setting up the “Beta RT Rig” anyway?

I watched much more carefully this time: During the attempt to install
MLDBM to satisfy Mason, the ‘freezethaw’ portion of ‘make test’ failed.
I haven’t figured out a way around this yet, but I’m still poking at it
(when I have time). I’m leery of forcing the install of MLDBM, so I’m
just going to wait for an answer of some sort. :wink:

cd ~root/.cpan/build

there should be a copy of the MLDBM source sitting there. try an install
by hand and tell me what happens.

Oddly enough ‘make install’ worked just fine. I guess it’s the ‘make
test’ that wasn’t happy, and in CPAN-land you’re kind of stuck at that
point. I have MLDBM and HTML::Mason installed… we’ll see if they break
later on this afternoon, when I’ve got the RT"2" test system running. I
have stdout/stderr output from the ‘make test’ for MLDBM if you want
’em, but they’re probably not really your problem. If it works… I’m
happy.
