Detail

Installing ActionTrackerPlugin using configure install currently fails with:

Error: Failed to move file 'lib/TWiki/Plugins/ActionTrackerPlugin/' to /home/httpd/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/ActionTrackerPlugin: Is a directory
Software error:

Installation terminated at /home/httpd/twiki/lib/TWiki/Configure/UIs/EXTEND.pm line 149.

(This means that the lib subdirectory contents for the plugin is not copied - another plugin with the same problem is AutoNavigationPlugin. AutoNavigationPlugin doesn't come with an installer to help fix it up).

Trying a manual install after this is somewhat peculiar as well:

Running perl ActionTrackerPlugin_installer.pl manually afterwards, has this output:

Downloaded archive from http://twiki.org/p/pub/Plugins to ./ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz
Could not create filehandle for './ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz': No such file or directory! at ActionTrackerPlugin_installer.pl line 673
No data could be read from file at ActionTrackerPlugin_installer.pl line 673
Could not open tar file ./ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz
Failed to unpack archive ./ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz
Archive unpacked

The tgz is actually downloaded OK?

Next roundtrip gives this:

..
/home/httpd/twiki/ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz exists on this machine; would you like me to use it?
It was created on Fri Apr 13 23:26:21 2007.
If not, I will try to download a new one.
Use existing /home/httpd/twiki/ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz? [y/n] y
Got a local archive from /home/httpd/twiki/ActionTrackerPlugin.tgz
    ActionTrackerPlugin_installer
..

which of course is much better.

Another curiousity some plugins have on dependencies:

$ perl BlogAddOn_installer

### BlogAddOn Installer ###

This installer must be run from the root directory of your TWiki
installation.
    * The script will not do anything without asking you for
      confirmation first (unless you used -a).
    * You can abort the script at any point and re-run it later
    * If you answer 'no' to any questions you can always re-run
      the script again later
##########################################################
Checking dependency on TWiki::Plugins::CommentPlugin....
*** BlogAddOn depends on perl package TWiki::Plugins::CommentPlugin >=12063
which is described as "Required"
But when I tried to find it I got this error:

 11359 is currently installed:
Would you like me to try to download and install the latest version of CommentPlugin from twiki.org? [y/n]

Apparently correct reportings of current versions are seen as an error.

From Item3748 it appears that having /tmp and ../twiki on different filesystems might be a factor in triggering these errors? (They are in separate filesystems in the above).

-- TWiki:Main.SteffenPoulsen - 17 Apr 2007

yes indeed; I think this is a duplicate of Item3748, and explains how that problem manifests itself. Thanks. Setting no-action (tracked elsewhere)
