in reply to problems installing only-0.28

I was able to do an install no problem on Red Hat 3 - What OS are you trying to install on?

[root@darkstar only-0.28]# perl Makefile.PL "only.pm" has special functionality that allows you to install multipl +e versions of any Perl module. In order to do this, it installs the modules in a separate directory than the rest of your modules. You need to decide which directory the modules will be installed in. This value will be stored in only::config so that only.pm will know where to look in order to load special versions of a module. The suggested place to install special versions of Perl modules is: /usr/lib/perl5/version/5.8.0 Do you want to use the "suggested" directory (y/n)? [y] y Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for only [root@darkstar only-0.28]# make cp lib/only/config.pm blib/lib/only/config.pm cp lib/only.pm blib/lib/only.pm cp lib/only/install.pm blib/lib/only/install.pm Manifying blib/man3/only.3pm Manifying blib/man3/only::install.3pm [root@darkstar only-0.28]# make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_h +arness(0, 'inc', 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/00config.............ok t/01install............ok t/02basic..............ok t/03range..............ok t/04clobber............ok t/05site...............ok t/06require............ok t/07inc................ok t/08use................ok t/09alternate..........ok t/10install_version....ok t/11fail_msg...........ok t/12set_versionlib.....ok t/13ooapi..............ok All tests successful.

    Sun OS 5.9 ( if i remember the versioning numbers correctly ), I think the Unix SA's here refer to it as Solaris 9. It is running on Fujitsu box. Looks like your successful install was done on Perl 5.8.0 while I was trying to install into 5.8.8. Did you have the version module installed too?

    edit: fixed os version number.
    edit: added module tags due to jdporter's suggestion
      Ahhh solaris 9 huh - Yeah I have had problems installing modules on Solaris before - I have had a lot more luck with Solaris 10 since it is more "linuxy" I don't have the version module installed. Have you tried to install using the -force option? That has worked for me in the past even though the test threw some failures out. Especially on Solaris platform.

      Okay updated ..I just tried to install on Solaris 8 and didn't even get as far as you did = (

      I am still trying to figure this out....

      # uname -a sunOS jabberwocky 5.8 Generic_108528-22 sun4u sparc SUNW,UltraAX-i2 # perl Makefile.PL Can't locate object method "splitpath" via package "File::Spec" at inc +/Module/Install/PERSONAL/only.pm - /Users/ingy/lib/Module/Install/PER +SONAL/only.pm line 58.
