TWiki.pm not found in @INC

Because my old machine did not have either Error.pm or Algorithm::Diff, /bin/configure would report that TWiki.pm was not found in @INC. The issue was that TWiki.pm or some related function could not be compiled.

I installed the above modules using CPAN to get around this issue.

See DakarReleaseNotes#CPAN_Requirements. Required CPAN modules are listed there.

true, but configure should not report that TWiki.pm could not be found - which would lead the user on a goose chase - instead it needs to report the correct error (um, somehow)

-- SvenDowideit - 08 Jul 2005

I'll bet you could check for it in a BEGIN block and have it spew an error message if it's not able to load.

Added required modules SVN 4548

NOTE: please report problems against Dakar in the Bugs web

crawford, the link to create this page was from http://develop.twiki.org/users/develop/pub/BuildDistros/; do you want me to point the "Discussion" links to the bugs web instead?

-- WillNorris - 09 Jul 2005

/bin/configure does some checking of it's own... Maybe it could check for the required modules there and report to the user if any are missing? (I did install one or two modules based on configure's recommendation, but it didn't mention Error.pm or Algorithm::Diff)

-- BillSkellenger - 09 Jul 2005

Will; yes, please.

Bill; It does check, thanks, since SVN 4548

-- CrawfordCurrie - 09 Jul 2005

ok, discussion links now redirect to the bugs web, SVN:4554

-- WillNorris - 09 Jul 2005

Crawford: Yes, indeed you're right, it does check for these modules.
