If you are using Debian, you can solve a lot of those problems by installing those support modules from the deb repository. Debian packages up a huge amount of perl modules, including the ones that you were having problems with.

  • libmodule-build-perl
  • libtest-pod-coverage-perl
  • libtest-pod-perl

Now these packaged version may not be the absolute latest on CPAN, but since they are support modules and will not be used in your application, that should usually not concern you.

There is also an extra deb repo that contains more recent CPAN modules. Just add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list config file:

deb unstable main

Although I don't know how up to date those are, since I haven't seen any changes to it recently....

[tye]: Is it just me, or do most python things have terrible logging/errors?
[LanX]: but but but ... the errors are nicely formatted!
[tye]: 1) The python stack traces show you the names of variables, not the values of variables. Almost never informative.
[LanX]: do you have a py job now?
[tye]: Right now I have errors trying to fetch stuff from graphite. It says 'apps not ready, check startup logs'. I eventually find the startup logs and see 'no apps found'. Looking for fixes to this problem...
[LanX]: no idea ... ask py monks! ;-p
[tye]: it turns out that this can be caused by almost anything going wrong. If you want to know what caused the problem, you have to try to load each app by-hand to see what problems it is having, because none of those will be logged.
[tye]: No, I write more Perl than py at work. But I have to deal with plenty of py things.
[tye]: py monks would just be offended.
