CPAN tests failing

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

I was going to post an RFC on my first-ever module released to CPAN, but it appears there is a problem that needs to be resolved first. I'll post the official RFC after I am convinced others can actually install the thing.

The distribution in question is RandomJungle. There are 8 modules, one of which ( contains the gold-standard data that is used by the test suite. There is something wrong with my build because all of the CPAN test reports are failing with messages like this:

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/perl-5.12.3/bin/perl "-MExtUti +ls::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*. +t Can't locate RandomJungle/ in @INC (@INC contains: /home/cp +an/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/RandomJungle-0. +02/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/b +uild/RandomJungle-0.02/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12 +.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Devel-StackTrace-1.27/blib/lib /home/cpan/p +it/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Devel-StackTrace-1. +27/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/ +build/Carp-1.25/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpan +plus/5.12.3/build/Carp-1.25/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl +-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Sub-Uplevel-0.24/blib/lib /home/cpan/p +it/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Sub-Uplevel-0.24/bl +ib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build +/Tree-DAG_Node-1.06/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/. +cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Tree-DAG_Node-1.06/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr +-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Test-Warn-0.24/blib/lib / +home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Test-War +n-0.24/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.1 +2.3/build/Devel-StackTrace-1.27/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/p +erl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Devel-StackTrace-1.27/blib/arch /ho +me/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Carp-1.25/ +blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/buil +d/Carp-1.25/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplu +s/5.12.3/build/Sub-Uplevel-0.24/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/p +erl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Sub-Uplevel-0.24/blib/arch /home/cp +an/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Tree-DAG_Node-1 +.06/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/ +build/Tree-DAG_Node-1.06/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5. +12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Test-Warn-0.24/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/th +r-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Test-Warn-0.24/blib/arch + /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus/5.12.3/build/Random +Jungle-0.02/blib/lib /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/conf/perl-5.12.3/.cpanplus +/5.12.3/build/RandomJungle-0.02/blib/arch /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/perl- +5.12.3/lib/site_perl/5.12.3/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld /home/cpan/p +it/thr-ld/perl-5.12.3/lib/site_perl/5.12.3 /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld/perl +-5.12.3/lib/5.12.3/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld /home/cpan/pit/thr-ld +/perl-5.12.3/lib/5.12.3 .) at t/DB_01.t line 10.

It works perfectly on my local system (of course). As this is my first time through the process, I suspect I'm missing something fairly basic. Could someone please enlighten me?

    That module is called and used as RandomJungle::TestData, but you store it in lib/, not lib/RandomJungle/ That's why perl doesn't find it.

    You might have a RandomJunge/ somewhere that is not shipped inside the distribution, which is why it works locally for you.

      If that's the case, then the entire distro is broken because I am missing the /lib/RandomJungle directory. I'll repackage it and release another version. Hopefully that does the trick. :-)

      Thanks for the help!

      Update: Version 0.03 has been uploaded and should be pushed to my CPAN directory soon. If anyone would like to give it a quick look, I'd appreciate it.

        From what I can tell by your CPAN layout, your directory structure should look like this:

        lib /RandomJungle /File |- |- |- |- /Tree |- |- |- |-

        Congrats on your first upload btw! For me, it was a stressful thing to do, and it took me a very long time and very much research before my first one :)

        Update: Let us know when you've got it updated and I'll install and test it.

    ok bro... a little late in the making, but as promised, here's what I had to do to install your module successfully on a pristine Ubuntu 11.10 machine:

    1 mkdir devel 2 cd devel 3 wget +omJungle-0.04.tar.gz 4 tar -xzvf RandomJungle-0.04.tar.gz 5 cd RandomJungle-0.04/ 6 perl Makefile.PL 7 make 8 make test *** expected errors due to deps 9 sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Test::Warn' 10 make test *** more expected errors 12 sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Devel::StackTrace' 13 make test *** again, expected errors 14 sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install DBM::Deep' 15 sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install XML::Twig' *** doa 16 sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'force install XML::Twig' *** force didn't work, so I did some research, but not before manually testing things on my own... 17 cd .. 18 wget +er-2.41.tar.gz 19 tar -xzvf XML-Parser-2.41.tar.gz 20 cd XML-Parser-2.41/ 23 make *** with another failure here, I resorted to good ol' google.

    Ironically, it was this PerlMonks post that sent me in the right direction, then I continued...

    26 sudo apt-get install libexpat1-dev 27 make 28 sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install XML::Twig' *** success with XML::Twig!! 29 cd .. 30 cd RandomJungle-0.04/ 31 make test 32* 33* sudo make install *** and all is good :)

    From what I can tell, you have all your bases covered :)

      Very cool. Thanks for the detailed notes. I wonder if, based on the hoops you had to jump through, I should create a bundle that includes the dependencies. Are there guidelines for when/how to do that?

      CPAN testing seems to be going well: 47+ reports in, all passed. :-)
