Rt3 on Redhat Enterprise 3

Has anyone attempted to build rt3, or any rt for the matter, on
RHEL 3? I was curious to hear about any experiences – I’m currently
attempting to but running into some issues. So far I’ve run into the issue
of RHEL 3 shipping with Maketext 1.03, rather than 1.04.

Thanks,

-charles.

Charles,

I’ve gotten RT 3.0.8 on RHEL 3.0 ES.

I had to rebuild/upgrade a lot of the packages and specify LANG=C so that
they compile correctly.

It does work, you just have to make it work.

Charles,

As have I, see

Besides LANG=C, at least one perl module has to be installed by hand as
‘make test’ will fail for root and cause CPAN not to install the
package; unfortunately I can’t remember which module it was (perhaps
LWP). A tip when working with CPAN is to have a few cold beers handy.

Apache::Test and Apache::Request are among the culprits here - they will run
the tests as root, but drop privileges to nobody and then require rwx
permission on the directory you’re running the tests in. I’m currently trying
to make rpms of all the CPAN packages needed by RT and getting bitten by this
quite regularly.

Have you tried the RPMPAM site? http://www.quantumlinux.com/~kevin/rpmpan/
Both Apache::Test and Apache::Request are available as RPMs.
