Running configure in Centos 4.4 gives these errors in the error log

And do these errors prevent you running configure? In general, these sorts of "errors" are actually harmless warnings and don't prevent use of the tool, which of course would make this "Normal" priority at worst.

This would appear to be something to do with File::Temp. Since TWiki::Configure::Checker does not use File::Temp, I can't imabine why it thinks there should be an error there, so it has to be in a require or use. Two UI modules use File::Temp; EXTENSIONS and EXTEND. The use File::Temp can be removed from EXTENSIONS; it is useless. There wouldn't appear to be anything wrong with the other, in EXTEND. I don't know what to suggest :-/


It is not urgent. I thought it was one of several causes for configure to fail. Turned out to be other issues that I fixed.

It is actually an old bug. I found it back in May but did not raise a bug report then. http://koala.ilog.fr/twikiirc/bin/irclogger_log/twiki?date=2006-05-31,Wed&sel=837#l833

This seems to be more an annoyance than anything else but it is worth to understand where it comes from. One day such bug could be important.

SVN 11929 did not make any difference.

Setting priority to low.


As I understand this, it is related to CPAN modules "sharing" global variables with the same name.

I don't think we should keep items open for this, but possibly report the issue upstream and discard?

Not sure what you mean, Steffen. Do you mean we should flip this to AppliesTo NotTWiki and pass the error on to the authors of File::Temp?

I assume this is to do with the CPAN modules in question inserting symbols into the namespace of the useing module? Isn't that a bit naughty?


No feedback from TWiki:Main.SteffenPoulsen, so setting no-action under 30 day rule.
