I’m installing Bugzilla (v 3.0.4) on Windows again, and I must say it’s going very nicely.
ppm repo add theory58S http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms
ppm install TimeDate + 2.22
ppm install Email-Send + 2.185
ppm install Template-Toolkit +v2.19
ppm install Email-MIME-Modifier +1.442
ppm install DBD-Pg + 1.45
ppm install DBD-mysql +4.005
ppm install GDGraph + 1.4308
ppm install Template-GD + 2.66
ppm install Chart + 2.3
ppm install XML-Twig + 3.32
ppm install MIME-tools + 5.4.20
ppm install PatchReader + 0.9.5
ppm install perl-ldap + 0.34
ppm install HTML-Scrubber + 0.88
ppm install Email-MIME-Attachment-Stripper + 1.313
ppm install Email-Reply + 1.202
I don’t need all these, but I thought I’d see how the install worked on each.
None of them had any trouble. DBD-mysql didn’t have any upgrade trouble, Chart didn’t need a custom install, template-toolkit didn’t choke on dependencies — these are among the issues I remember in the past.
Thanks alot to the Theoryx folks at the University of Winnipeg.
PerlMagick is included with ImageMagick these days, so I installed ImageMagick 6.4.2-1 O16 but it’s PerlMagick was for ActivePerl 5.10.[something] and I couldn’t find older versions on their site. If deliberate, I understand the motive, but such draconian measures hurt more than they help.
Anyway, another Google search turned up the following link:
which led to:
so I typed:
ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/Image-Magick.pp
This installed PerlMagick successfully, at least to the point of passing checksetup.pl and a simple script that just looks like:
So thanks again Theoryx, thanks Google, thanks PerlMonks, thanks Bribes.org, thanks ImageMagick, thanks Netscape, thanks Bugzilla team, thanks Larry & co, thanks Linus and RMS, Tim B-L, DARPA, & etc.
