Undefined subroutine CGI::Vars


#1

I just installed rt-1.0.7 on FreeBSD-stable, for testing.
I’m seeing the subject error (undefined subroutine CGI::Vars)
in the httpd error log. I know that the README file specifically
mentions that problem, but the suggestion that the CGI.pm
is too old isn’t applicable, as I have 2.76 installed. It appears
that 2.76 doesn’t have CGI::Vars defined.

What should I do?

Thanks.
Steve

Where’s that 2.76 number come from? The ‘latest’ CPAN version of CGI.pm
is 2.752 (2.75 patch 2). Did you install from the ports collection
or using CPAN? I’d recommend that you install the latest CGI.pm
from CPAN regardless. Sometimes, vendor versions of perl modules
are subtly ‘different’.

Transporters are so ungodly. if god had wanted us to travel great distances
instantaneously, he would have given us an internal
materialisation/dematerialisation control.

You’re right. I got 2.752 from CPAN, and it’s working now. (I just assumed
that /usr/ports/www/p5-CGI would include CGI.pm - wrongly.)

Thanks for your help.
