TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

CPAN on LAMP TurnKey = fail

I can never seem to get CPAN to work on a LAMP instance out of the box.  This goes for everything from virtual machines in our internal systems to Amazon EC2 deployments.

I get the following error no matter what I try to install:

 

	   -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

 

Any advice here? This is really frustrating, a LAMP platform should be perl ready.

"NOT OK" is not useful. Paste

"NOT OK" is not useful. Paste the entire error log next time.

Ok

Well, for example:

Running install for module Term::ReadKey
Running make for J/JS/JSTOWE/TermReadKey-2.30.tar.gz
  Is already unwrapped into directory /root/.cpan/build/TermReadKey-2.30
  Has already been processed within this session
Running make test
  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

Alon Swartz's picture

Why not use the package repository?

Most of the popular Perl libraries are packaged in Ubuntu/Debian, so why not use them?

apt-get update
apt-get install libterm-readkey-perl

 

With regards to CPAN, could you please post detailed information (packages installed, commands executed) so we can reproduce the issue. Once we can reproduce it, we can (hopefully) solve it.

No problem

Unfortunately I'm actually using an installer script that happens to use CPAN to fetch its perl prereqs.  I can get around it myself for this instance, but I'd like to help improve perl package management for TurnKey posterity.

btw, cpanm is a much better package installer for perl.  I'm having better success with it.

Here's the output for a try at Archive::Tar using regular cpan. (SPAM ALERT)

  CPAN.pm: Going to build B/BI/BINGOS/Archive-Tar-1.72.tar.gz

You do not have IO::Compress::Bzip2 installed. This means you can not read or write bzip2 compressed archives!
Note: you can disable this warning (and the prerequisite) by invoking Makefile.PL with '-n'

Archive::Tar comes with a utility called 'ptardiff' which lets you run diffs against tar archives.

However, this utility requires you to have Text::Diff installed.

To add Text::Diff as a prerequisite, please supply the '-d' option when invoking this Makefile.PL.

Checking if your kit is complete...

Perl module updates/Installation

I found this helpful:

 

apt-get install webmin-cpan

 

Then use webmin to install new modules via cpan.  Might not exactly solve the problem, but it does work.

Did you try checking the 11RC version of LAMP?

This was probably an issue with Ubuntu Hardy itself so it may have been fixed in Lucid. You might want to give it a try and report back. If this happens with TurnKey it probably also happens with generic Ubuntu so you may be able to find more information and possibly a workaround that way. Just a guess but this may be the result of a tug of war between CPAN and the package management system.

Im trying to install a grahics library called GD, which I've been told you do by running the command

cpan GD

However when I do that I get

I tried installing the webmin module as suggested but it made no difference.

solution: install build-essential

Sorry for the late reply. I just confirmed the issue by attempting to use cpan to install Tar::Archive and it errored out with make issues.

So, I installed build-essential then attempted to use cpan again to install Tar::Archive and it worked.

apt-get update
apt-get install build-essential

I hope the above solves your issues...

'make' is missing

I've just been messing with the same thing; the make command is missing if you want to keep your vm small; download 'make' from your favorite ubuntu repository and use the upload option on the package install page.  that will fix much of the problem with CPAN.  ( the make package will not show up on its own, at least it did not when I tried apt-get; possibly because it is included in build-essential )
