RTx:: Statistics Debian/Ubuntu

Hello:

I wanted to publicly thank Kelly F. Hickel for taking the time out to
help me get the RTx: Statistics package working on my RT install.
Unfortunately, we never did get it working on my system. Kelly suspects
it may be something with the Callback not being executed.

So, if anyone has any experience with RT on Debian/Ubuntu, and have any
tips they could hand off to me, I would appreciate it. On another note,
the Statistics package is not mission critical for me, but it would be a
nice little addition. Now, it’s more of a matter of, “I feel I have gone
to battle with the computer, and the computer has won!”

Thanks!

We’re running Debian + RT 3.4.4-1 and the statistics package is working
fine.

If you would like some information on our setup, let me know.

Brendon,
Any chance you could update the wiki page
http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?RT3StatisticsPackage with the
locations of the various pieces that get installed with RTx::Statistics?
And/Or, send them to me and I’ll put them in the README as well as the
wiki.

The location of all the files installed the last time you ran make
install are listed in /opt/rt3/local/lib/auto/RTx/Statistics/.packlist
(that’s the non-debian path of course). One of the issues that seem to
exist with Module::RTx is that this file seems to be replaced at each
install, but since the install only copies files that are changed, it
doesn’t always list every file. I haven’t had time to dig into that too
much, so YMMV…

This seems to be the big stumbling block for debian installs, once the
files all get to the correct locations, it seems to work.

Brendon:

Any tips you could pass on to me would be great! Specifically, did you
have to do anything “special” to get it running? Kelly went over quite a
bit of things with me as far as installation goes, and it looked like
everything was in order.

We’re running RT 3.4.2, with Apache 2.0.54, Perl 5.8.7, and FCGI 0.67.
And oh yeah, I think I mentioned I’m using Ubuntu Breezy Badger (5.10)
as my O/S. From everything I’ve read, it should be very similar Debian.

Thanks!

I just dropped the statistics package into the appropriate directory and it
worked. Magical.

Some package info from my debian install
libapache-mod-fastcgi 2.4.2-7
libcgi-fast-perl 5.8.7-7
rt3.4-apache 3.4.4-1
apache 1.3.34-1
perl 5.8.7-10

Hmm, what version of statistics do you have? What was “the appropriate

Directory
/usr/local/share/request-tracker3.4/html/Statistics

/usr/local/share/request-tracker3.4/html/Statistics$ head -2 README
RT3 Statistics package
VERSION:0.1.6RC1

I think it is really 1.6 final, but the author forgot to update the README
when he released it.

Yes, I did, but this is also before the conversion to RTx, so doesn’t
clear up all the issues…

Thanks,
