Reported in TWiki:Support/RcsErrorWhenRunningConfigure
When I attempt to run the configure command, underneith the CGI setup section, an error appears that says, Software error: Argument "/usr/bin/rcs" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at /srv/twiki/lib/TWiki/Configure/Checkers/RCS/Checker.pm line 51.
I found the answer! The rcs install program put all the compiled rcs commands into /usr/local/bin. The program was looking for them in /usr/bin. Modifying the installation path and remaking the rcs files solved the problem.
This needs to be fixed. Configure should not die because of an incorrect configure option.
I am raising this to urgent. To give a good first installation experience is important.
The whole checker was a bit suspect. Fixed.
Note that this change doesn't move the RCS paths to /usr/local/lib, as most linux distributions place them in /usr/bin.
It would probably be more sensible to remove the paths altogether.
This one was also marked as patch and only checked into MAIN.
I have now merged it into Patch04x01
