in thread How to create GUI for a perl script on MAC?/Apple Script and Perl?

I'm not using ActivePerl on my Mac.

Anyway, at the provided link i see "The build failed on this platform...". Nothing new.

And i'm not using citrusperl.

I mentioned my OS as well as my perl version in my post.

So i'm wondering how to get this things together.

Thank you very much for any hint and best regards, Karl

    Anyway, at the provided link i see "The build failed on this platform...". Nothing new.

    because it timed out, no other reason --u it succeeded for all other activeperl versions

    And i'm not using citrusperl.

    Maybe you should use it, you know, 5min to download, 1 min to install, and then you're done

    I mentioned my OS as well as my perl version in my post. So i'm wondering how to get this things together.

    read the log? Yeah, read the log, and then, read the log

    Also,  cpanm ... isn't magic bullet, if it fails, you're not going to fix anything with more  cpanm ... you need to cd to the module directory and do things yourself, perl Makefile.PL, make ... get an error message and resolve it

      Just for completeness, correctness and your information:

      I don't give up so fast, so i gave it a try again yesterday (on Lion, without cpanm).

      I gave up after about 6 hours - i skip the ugly details.

      This morning i retried it on Mountain Lion using cpanm and it works!

      I was a bit amazed, but it just works, nice.

      Best regards, Karl

[Corion]: But yes, "who started this process" is interesting information :)
[tye]: no, I really believe that "login user" was added as a fundamental bit of info about each process in order to enhance the usefulness of auditing
[Corion]: Ah - if that information is saved in a file, then you could theoretically spam that file and confuse getlogin(). So, don't use it for authentication :)
[tye]: that is what getlogin() certainly *used* to do. I don't believe that is what it certainly should do.
[davido]: /var/run/utmp is 664 i think.
[tye]: Note that my "man getlogin" says that it uses stdin when it should use /dev/tty (calling a glibc bug). But that does not appear to be the case when I test it. But maybe Perl's getlogin() is not using glibc's getlogin().
[oiskuu]: well, run a strace and see what the getlogin does for you.... As I said. SELinux probably has those security labels. But not regular linux.
[tye]: for example, read https://unix. stackexchange.com/ questions/146138/ loginuid-should-be -allowed-to-change -or-not-mutable-or -not
[tye]: I'm not using SELinux and it certainly appears to disagree with you. shrug
[tye]: Since you brought up /proc, oiskuu, I didn't see you respond to my suggestion of 'loginuid'. Does your /proc not have such?
