in reply to Perl 5.20.0

I installed 5.20 (64bitall threaded longdouble) on OpenSUSE 13.1

Linux 3.11.10-11-desktop [openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle)] x86_64 Xeon(R) CPU +E3-1245 V2 @ 3.40GHz/3672(8) x86_64 11914 Mb This is perl 5, version 20, subversion 0 (v5.20.0) built for x86_64-li +nux-thread-multi-ld

I managed to get most of my 5.18.2 installed modules also installed under 5.20. Some needed answering questions I did not (yet) have available in my cpanprefs and others needed patches I had done before but did not store other than in the RT ticket that was already filed for the module. What is left uninstallable is the list below.

XML::LibXML::PrettyPrint from tobyink was manually changed to replace the useless dependency on common::sense (useless as it adds no value over using strict, and adds a dependency on a module that is blocked in my cpanprefs), with strict.

Devel::Size - size mismatch. Analysis done by DaveM Image::Magick - hangs in mpeg/read.t test JE - several issues ($^T, $^W, regex) Lingua::Translate - babelfish redirect (no perl problem) MooseX::App::Cmd - test fail POE::Loop::Tk - Cannot redirect out of tied STDIN Statistics::LineFit - longdouble issues in test (bad test case) SVN::Core - make fails due to svn incompat

failing for failing dependency:

WWW::Scripter::Plugin::Ajax - depend on JE WWW::Scripter::Plugin::JavaScript - depend on JE

the 5.20.0 tree now has 9048 .pm files based on 818 releases installed from cpan after the initial install.

I'd call that a success.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
