    Task::Mechanistic::Firefox to track the dependencies during installing


    hello dear gentlemen,

    new to this list - so do not bear with me when asking newbie questions

    as i try to install Mozrepl and Mechanize::FireFox on a OpenSuse-Linux-Box i run into issues. See some of them. note - this was a earlier try - with the version 0.58

    But the issues are still the same. But - we have some better way now. There is a packaged version available. I give it a try. See below. what do you think about this !?

    Code:
    t/mechanize/content.t           (Wstat: 512 Tests: 0 Failed: 0)
      Non-zero exit status: 2
      Parse errors: No plan found in TAP output
    t/rt65615.t                     (Wstat: 512 Tests: 0 Failed: 0)
      Non-zero exit status: 2
      Parse errors: No plan found in TAP output
    t/select.t                      (Wstat: 512 Tests: 0 Failed: 0)
      Non-zero exit status: 2
      Parse errors: No plan found in TAP output
    Files=72, Tests=59,  5 wallclock secs ( 0.25 usr  0.10 sys +  4.08 cusr  0.62 csys =  5.05 CPU)
    Result: FAIL
    Failed 67/72 test programs. 13/59 subtests failed.
    make: *** [test_dynamic] Fehler 2
      CORION/WWW-Mechanize-Firefox-0.58.tar.gz
    one dependency not OK (MozRepl::RemoteObject); additionally test harness failed
      /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
    //hint// to see the cpan-testers results for installing this module, try:
      reports CORION/WWW-Mechanize-Firefox-0.58.tar.gz
    Running make install
      make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
    linux-wyee:/home/martin/perl #

    well i have run into various issues - since i try to install this for several times /and on several linux distributions i now get frustratd.

    Regrading the Make-Test: this is a difficult issue i run several times into - e.g. here i also had a bad make-test too: And on a sidenote: a guy told me to take care with the installation. He pointed out that the bad make-test can be caused by an installation for only one user - and not the whole system. It is possible that i do something wrong here What do you think - is it possible that i run into problems since i do a messed up installation - with parts of it

    - installed as superuser [root], and other parts of it
    - installed as user [martin]

    what do you tink - is this possible. Can this be a cause of the issues i am faced!? Well when trying to install Mozrepl then i ofteh get the following report: MozRepl::RemoteObject cannot be loaded.

    Hmmm - a guy told me: This happens when MozRepl::RemoteObject cannot be loaded. Install MozRepl for the system, not your user only.

    on a sidenote: Well we tried to install www::mechanize::firefox through CPAN. The hard thing is that i face that CPAN does not handle all dependencies, Isn't it supposed to handle all dependencies automatically? We see that there are loads of dependencies that need to be installed before we can install Mechanize. I see that i run sometimes into serious problems.- See the make issues(below) that i often run into!

    I heard about this package at CPAN: Task::Mechanistic::Firefox wihch contains lots of stuff that is needed. see detailed inof at the CPAN-Page:

    Khen, the guy that put together all this told this - since there are loads of dependencies that need to be installed before we can install Mechanize. Sure, CPAN does exactly what it is told to do. The authors of the dependencies are supposed to to tell it to install prerequisites: however, apparently they don't always do that, so some dependencies end up in the wind, causing the problems that we are encountering.

    So what do you think, should we give this mentioned package a try!? With it we have a better way now. There is a packaged version available. Hmm - guess i give it a try. what do you say?

    again the package at CPAN: Task::Mechanistic::Firefox

    love to hear from you
    greetings

    Hi,

    I see the perl-WWW-Mechanize package available in the OpenSUSE repos, have you tried to install that first?
