Blowssi - Perl v5.10.1 - 2/3 subtests failed
« on: April 18, 2011, 02:42:31 PM »

I'm having some issues building blowssi and tbh, i'm no wizzard with Perl.
This is all the information i have and i can only hope for some help here:

OS: Xubuntu 10.10
Perl: v5.10.1
Blowssi: v0.2.0
running as root just to be extra clear here..

This is what i get from "make test" on Crypt-ircDH1080-0.01:
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t
t/Crypt-ircDH1080.t .. 1/2
#   Failed test at t/Crypt-ircDH1080.t line 21.
# Looks like you planned 2 tests but ran 3.
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 3 run.
t/Crypt-ircDH1080.t .. Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
Failed 1/2 subtests

Test Summary Report
t/Crypt-ircDH1080.t (Wstat: 256 Tests: 3 Failed: 2)
  Failed tests:  2-3
  Non-zero exit status: 1
  Parse errors: Bad plan.  You planned 2 tests but ran 3.
Files=1, Tests=3,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.02 usr  0.00 sys +  0.15 cusr  0.00 csys =  0.17 CPU)
Result: FAIL
Failed 1/1 test programs. 2/3 subtests failed.
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 1

I ran into some issues with a lot of libraries, like Crypt::Random, doesn't excist in my distro aparently so i took some help from #perl and they gave me these instructions:
curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - --sudo App::cpanminus
cpanm -S Crypt::Random
That did the trick for that module, had some others but i simply replaced the dashes in the error message with :: and tried:
cpanm -S <Module::Thing::here> and it worked, and i got this faar.

I'll supply any details you need, i can rerun the entire command history just to get this working tbh.
I'm just so new to Perl so i don't really know what you expect when you debug, if you'd be using Python, C++, C# you name it i'd probably be of more use, so, if you need any info at all, poke me! i'll probably hang around irc for some time hoping for an answer (nick on efnet is Torxed tho)

Thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart!

You might be able to get away with just skipping the make test step.

I'm not the author of Crypt-ircDH1080 so you might want to ask whoever made that module.
All I can say is that it works fine here on perl v5.12.2
It's pretty hard to debug stuff without ssh access over a forum :)

Wow, everything i've learned, i've learned from trynig things without reading up on it first.
This has given me a hughe advantage in trying to find solutions on problems when it comes to computers..

But i couldn't even try a simple thing such as just skipping the test :P
Gothi[c], you were right, i got away with just running "make" -> "make install" :)

Thank you for this, i honestly don't think i would have solved it due to lack of brainfunction on my part ^^
