  • I tried to install this today on a personal hosting account today on a shared system where I have SSH access, but did not want to install the dependencies as root.

    First, I tried several alternatives for using PAR, building a packed file on my Linux laptop and uploading to the FreeBSD server. That failed in part because PAR failed to detect all the dependencies, including some of the XML::Feed namespace modules and some of the DateTime modules. It was also overly conservative about which modules it through n
    • I'll suggest from this experience that the dependency chain of XML::Feed is similar in complexity to that of Plagger from this perspective

      The dependencies checker indicates that XML::Feed has a 44% chance [cantrell.org.uk] of installing correctly whereas Plagger has a 26% chance [cantrell.org.uk]. Of course, Plagger uses XML::Feed so Plagger never going to be easier to install than XML::Feed.

      I had exactly the same problem with XML::LibXML that you did. My server is a Fedora Core 6 system and I install all of my modules using rpm (building my own when necessary). The version of XML::LibXML available for FC6 is 1.62 and XML::Atom (which is required by XML::Feed) needs at least 1.64. I solved the problem by downloading the source rpm from the Fedora 9 development repository and rebuilding it on my server. Of course, having root access makes that a bit easier :-)

      It's great that people are interested in Perlanet, but I need to emphasise that it is a two-hour hack that I threw together to solve a particular problem that I had. If other people find it useful then I'll certainly clean it up and make it as easy as possible to install, but currently I don't have the time to space.
