Some other guys and I have been trying to install WebWork under apache
2.0.47 and mod_perl 1.99 for a bit and we're running into a few
roadblocks, esp. concerning getting the CPAN modules to install
I guess a bit more background information might help explain what the problem is a bit further.
The box is a fresh install of Fedora Core 1. Perl 5.8.3, Apache 2.0.47
and mod_perl are all working and in good order. We've been installing
all of the packages under the SystemRequirements page in the WiKi.
Trying to install the Bundle::Apache package bombs out for us though.
One of the dependancies is the mod_perl package, which we cannot get to
build properly (Although, I'm curious if we really need it at all,
considering it's already installed). After poking around a bit, I found
that Bundle::Apache was a meta package containing several other
packages. ePerl(one of the subpackages) bombs out, apparently because
it's test for what version of perl is installed grep's for 'version'
while perl 5.8.3 returns 'v'. Changing that in the configuration script
and running make bombs out on compilation errors on ebuild_parse.c
I'm curious if maybe there are newer versions of apache, etc.. that we
could install which might resolve these issues, but apparently up2date
is borked at the moment on the count that redhat released a new version
of fedora. If you have any suggestions, post them, and maybe we could
work out an install guide for webwork under apache 2.
