thanos1983 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello fellow Monks,

I was trying to install Crypt::Curve25519 on my LinuxOS box via cpanm and I get the following error:

$ sudo cpanm Crypt::Curve25519 --> Working on Crypt::Curve25519 Fetching +6.tar.gz ... OK Configuring Crypt-Curve25519-0.06 ... OK Building and testing Crypt-Curve25519-0.06 ... FAIL ! Installing Crypt::Curve25519 failed. See /home/tinyos/.cpanm/work/15 +57136045.12229/build.log for details. Retry with --force to force ins +tall it.

If I open the log file:

I have even tried to force it to install it still fails. I also found this bug report since 2017 (open last update Friday) dev-perl / Crypt-Curve25519

I updated all the dependencies to the latest version but it stills fails.

Anyone knows if this will be fixed any time soon or any workaround on this?

Thanks again for your time and effort reading and replying to my question.

Update: It seems that this bug has been reported on GitHub as well ajgb/crypt-curve25519. As proposed workaround is to downgrade to the previous version 0.05.

    In curve25519-donna-c64.c and curve25519-donna.c (both of which are in the top level directory of the Crypt::Curve25519 source) replace every occurrence of "fmul" with a symbol (eg "donna_fmul") that's not going to clash.
    IIUC the module will then build cleanly on linux.


      Hello syphilis,

      Works perfectly. Thank you for the tip. :)
