Standalone network installation

I’m having problems properly setting up RTv3.8.1 on RHEL5.1 that’s part of a network with no outside connection. I’ve tried reading through the wiki as well as the mailing lists but still am not able to understand what I need to do.

I’m trying to get RT v3.8.1 up and running on a standalone network.

So far I have installed RHEL5.1, installed Apache 2.2, installed MySql 5.0, and ran the ./configure script. When I run make testdeps, it lists many that are not there. I then try to run make fixdeps but it tries to go out to CPAN. It can’t do that because it’s being installed on a standalone network. I tried using JWhite3’s package but it requires access to RHN which is not a viable option for me.

I’m using RT v3.8.1, Apache 2.2, MySql 5.0, modperl 2, RHEL 5.1.

Can someone please point me to where I need to go to get this accomplished?

Thanks for your time and sorry for the lack of knowledge.

If external connectivity (even temporarily) isn’t an option, you might look
at the output of ‘make testdeps’ and then manually download and install each
of the required perl modules. Keep in mind this would be a long and painful
process (due to dependencies).

If you can connect the node to the outside (or migrate it) temporarily, that
would solve a number of issues you’re bound to run into.

Unfortunately, 3.8.1 requires a number of perl modules, that as far as I am
aware are not available via RPM. I’m running 3.8.1 on CentOS 5.2 and found
that several modules had to be pulled from CPAN.On Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 3:45 PM, rt-users-request@lists.bestpractical.comwrote:

We have been working on a bit of technology to make this a lot easier.
We call it ‘shipwright’

sunnavy, can ping me about finishing up a beta shipwright vessel
tarball for RT 3.8.1 that I can publish for Glenn to test out?

Thanks! Any and all help is appreciated!

Yeah, I’m unable to connect it to the outside world. Offline can you please point me to where I can lookup how to pull individual packages from CPAN? Also, I have to worry about their individual dependencies as well correct? I can download whatever from the outside, burn it on a cd, and bring that into the standalone network.

You can search for the modules on search.cpan.org, and download them
manually. You will then need to install them by hand.

You might also consider creating a minimal CPAN mirror, as described here:

Hope this helps.On Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 5:40 PM, Mchenry, Glenn gmchenry@qualcomm.com wrote:
