Tough question for me

1st… hello to all. I have been an rt1 admin for our company for nearly 2
years now and am trying to make the switch to rt2 asap. It has taken me
months so far and, even working with two senior engineers, we are having
issues with mod_perl and mason. When using strace, we see kernel
semaphore errors, as well. Also… we have found that using recent
versions of mod_perl does not work at all. We have been forced to use
1.27 (vs. current 1.99) why is this? Help is appreciated in this. I
guess the best thing to know would be specific versions of software that
are recommended. That would help tremendously.

If you have a procedure with 10 parameters, you probably missed some.

It has taken me months so far and, even working with two senior
engineers, we are having issues with mod_perl and mason. When using
strace, we see kernel semaphore errors, as well. Also… we have found
that using recent versions of mod_perl does not work at all. We have
been forced to use 1.27 (vs. current 1.99) why is this?

mod_perl 1.99 is designed only to be used with Apache 2.0, which you
don’t want to be using for this. Go with Apache 1.3.24 and mod_perl
1.27, and you should be OK. Also, what type of machine are you working
on, compiler, perl version, etc? All of these things are relevant.
