Subject Re: ANNOUNCE: Embperl-2.5.0_2
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 20:00:04 GMT
Hi Gerald, testing your new 2.5.0_2 on Debian Wheezy AMD64, with stock 
perl 5.14.2, Apache 2.2.22.

First of all, during perl Makefile.PL, it asks for the path to start as 
httpd. It is able to pick up the fact that it is in 
/usr/local/httpd_perl, which is correct, but I always have to enter the 
whole thing because my binary is not called 'httpd', but rather 
'httpd_perl' (I have another build on the same machine for the front end 
caching reverse proxy, and that is named httpd_proxy). Would it be 
easy/possible to have your make script pick up the actual httpd_perl 
binary name that I built my mod_perl apache with, rather than assuming 
httpd? Minor issue, but just thought I'd ask.

Second, it makes it all the way through to the 'make test', but fails 
here - last few lines below.



make test output follows:


Performing httpd syntax check 1 ...  ok

Performing httpd syntax check 2 ...  ok

Starting httpd...       pid = 10790  ok

Testing mod_perl mode...
