Trouble with make install

Recently downloaded and attempting to install Request Tracker. Took awhile to get all of the depends installed, but finally got there…

We get the following when attempting to run the make install:

samsabsd01# make install
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/bin
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/WebRT/data
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/WebRT/sessiondata
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/etc
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/lib
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/WebRT/html
mkdir -p file://usr/local/rt/local/WebRT/html
/usr/bin/perl tools/initdb ‘mysql’ ‘/usr/local/bin/mysql’ ‘localhost’ ‘’ ‘sams
a’ ‘rt’ create
Now creating a database for RT.
Enter the mysql password for samsa:
Creating mysql database rt.
DBD::mysql::db do failed: Can’t create database ‘rt’. (errno: 13) at /usr/local/
lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/DBIx/DataSource/Driver.pm line 77, chunk 1.
Can’t create database ‘rt’. (errno: 13) at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/
DBIx/DataSource/Driver.pm line 77, chunk 1.
*** Error code 35

Stop in /home/mstackhouse/rt/rt-2-0-11.

Any thoughts as to what the problem might be? I suppose one of the dependant modules didn’t install correctly, but don’t know what to do from here.

We’re relative newbies to Unix - been running our Freebsd 4.2 machine for about 8 months or so.

Thanks for any assistance that anybody might have…

At a rough guess, you’ve defined ‘samsa’ as the DB_DBA in the Makefile,
and the ‘samsa’ MySQL user simply does not have permission to create
databases in MySQL as per the “Can’t create database” error.

The comment on DB_DBA in the Makefile is relevant:

# Set DB_DBA to the name of a DB user with permission to create new databases
# Set DB_DBA_PASSWORD to that user's password (if you don't, you'll be prompted
# later)

As a side note, you might want to look at www.freebsd.org and see what
security issues have been raised with that release.
