Basically: require failed: No such file or directory, Can't locate TWiki.cfg but when I check from the filesystem things exist where I say they are.


Hi, I figured I'd give the latest Dakar (r4386) snapshot a try. I'm following http://ntwiki.ethermage.net/~develop/cgi-bin/view/TWiki/TWikiInstallationGuide but there is something not right and I can't get past running bin/configure. The error message is not informative enough to tell me what's not right.

Configuration error
TWiki.cfg is unreadable or has a configuration problem that is causing a Perl error - the following message(s) should help locate the problem.

require failed: No such file or directory
Can't locate TWiki.cfg in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.2/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.2 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at (eval 8) line 1. 

The only thing I changed in bin/LocalLib.cfg was to add the first line below:

my $twikiLibPath = "/usr/local/sites/www/htdocs/dakar/lib";
use Cwd qw( abs_path );

I've verfied the path by copying and doing ls from the shell and TWiki.cfg is in that directory.

Oh dear; my $twikiLibPath? No, that isn't going to work, I'm afraid. Delete the my. -CC

That shortens the error message to simply require failed: No such file or directory without telling me what file or dir it's looking for. Upgraded to r4405 with no change in results.

I set Current State to 'new' as I don't know what to use for re-opening

This was due to the LocalSite.cfg no esxisting. I have improved the checking for a writable localsite.cfg, and disabled the update button if it is not writable.
