dannoura has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I'm trying to install Tk on Ubuntu Feisty running perl 5.8.8, using cpan. After running install I get:

t/zzScrolled.................NOK 66# Test 66 got: "589x341+0+32" (t/zz +Scrolled.t at line 104 fail #2) # Expected: "589x341+0+0" (Sizechk: geometry has not changed not re +set for -height => 24+(5)) # t/zzScrolled.t line 104 is: ok($newgeo, $oldgeo, "Sizec +hk: geometry has not changed not reset" . t/zzScrolled.................FAILED test 66 + Failed 1/94 tests, 98.94% okay t/zzText.....................ok + t/zzTixGrid..................ok + Failed Test Stat Wstat Total Fail Failed List of Failed ---------------------------------------------------------------------- +--------- t/zzScrolled.t 94 1 1.06% 66 (3 subtests UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCEEDED), 23 subtests skipped. Failed 1/47 test scripts, 97.87% okay. 1/2619 subtests failed, 99.96% +okay. make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 255 /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK Running make install make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

Any ideas on how to solve this?

    The tests run when you install Tk, generate alot of harmless errors, but it will run Ok. So I would get the latest patched release Tk-804.027-501 from latest Tk , and install it manually. It's easy... make, make test (ignore errors), make install (as root). It sounds like the cpan program(which I don't use) will stop install if it gets errors from make test; so either do what I suggest above, or use the -force option to ignore the errors.

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum

    As zentara said. If you used cpan to intall, you can either use the force option

    % cpan -fi Tk

    or use the state that cpan left you and do something like

    % cd ~/.cpan/build/Tk* % make install UNINST=1

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
