Fink & 10.4.9 Problem Solved!

We have a solution. The was that the 10.4.9 upgrade changes the Storable cpan module for Perl. The solution came from Peter Walsham at Axomic. I just tried it and it works. (Interesting to note that CPAN reported that my Storable module was version 2.15 before I tried this. Something must have been eaten in the OSX 10.4.9 upgrade.)

Thanks Pete!

Hi,

We just encountered this on a 10.4.9 server

We managed to fix the problem by getting the latest version of Storable and installing it into:

/System/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/*
/System/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level/Storable.pm

Get the release from…

http://search.cpan.org/~ams/Storable-2.15/
http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/A/AM/AMS/Storable-2.15.tar.gz

…as root do

tar -xvzf Storable-2.15.tar.gz
cd Storable-2.15
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install

Pete
