Subject Perl 5.6 issues?
Date Tue, 28 Mar 2000 15:54:08 GMT
I have a sucessfully compiled on Linux (Slackware 3.5) 5.6/1.22/1.3.12 with no
modifications.  All these items worked fine together with 100% pass rate on
tests.

mod_perl - perl Makefile.PL EVERYTHING=1
NON DSO

I have it installed and serving pages with numerous Perl modules.

The two remanining issues for me are HTML::Embperl and SSI.

I have been in contact with Gerald Richter (the author of HTML::Embperl) and he
is looking into it.  See the embperl@perl.apache.org mailling list for more
information.

So until that is resolved each child can only serve one request and then dies.
Which is not good if you are running a high traffic site.

I have also noticed that SSI pages are not working.  I notice in the compile
that it says USE_PERL_SSI or something similar, does that in fact mean that SSI
is handled by mod_perl on a mod_perl enabled httpd?  It handles the first SSI
fine, but the page that is called has SSIs inside of it and these cause the page
to "stop". I removed these and then when the included page finishes it does not
return and finish the opening page it "stops" at the end of the include file.  I
believe it causes a segmentation fault and kills the apache child at this point.

Could the segmentation fault be due to the mod_perl code (or more likely changes
in the Perl 5.6 code) and in turn cause the Embperl problems? The Embperl issue
is on file cleanup/close so I am thinking that the same area is handling the
clean up on the SSI page, but the mod_perl test suite shows a pass on SSI. Of
course I am totally guessing here.  (See
http://www.mail-archive.com/embperl@perl.apache.org/ for more information. The
subject is "Compile problems")

I tried the compile with Apache 1.3.9 and it had the same results.
