WWW::Mechanize install failure (RT3 & Red Hat 8.0)

I’m sorry if this has been asked before but I’m trying to install RT3 on a
Red Hat 8.0 system. I do the perl … --install and the only thing it can’t
install is the WWW::Mechanize (it has problems during ‘make test’). I tried
installing it by itself (‘install WWW::Mechanize’) but that had the same
test failures. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem (on a Debian 3.0 system) and I solved it with
"force install WWW::Mechanize" and then hitting control-c on the test it
stalled on. It seems to work (well, I assume that the one bug that’s
biting us has nothing to do with that, at least.)

WWW::Mechanize’s test does not work well with proxies that require
authentication. You don’t happen to redirect to such a proxy
transparently?

Yup, sure do. Is the force install the right way to go then?

If You want to be sure that everything works, You should exempt the
installation machine from the proxy requirement. If that can’t be done,
a force install should normally work - but that’s on Your own risk, of
course!
