Can't run F-Prot with Crontab


I installed F-Prot on my file/print server running Slackware 10. When I try to run update.pl I get an error from CPAN telling me to install HTTP Request. I can run the scan from CLI no problem there, but when I try to run update.pI from my crontab or the CLI I still get the same error. I run CPAN and re-install all module, still get the same error. I re-install Perl and I still get the same error.

Any idea has to what I am doing wrong, Am I missing a step? Any one knows if there is a problem between CPAN and Slack 10?

Thank You,

maxflex

try (as root ):
cpan
cpan > install Bundle::CPAN
...
cpan > install HTTP::Request

(press just enter in each case when it asks questions)

Thanks Cedrik,

I ran CPAN once more so I could give the exact error here it is;

Failed 1/41 test scripts, 97.56% okey. 1/761 subtests failed, 99.87% okay.
make: *** [ test } Error 255
/usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
make test had returned a bad status, won't install without force

I did try installing using force and I still get the same error

From F-Prot's page:
<quote>

4.3 F-Prot Antivirus Updater Requirements
The Updater script was written for perl 5.8 and is dependant on the following perl modules:

NET::FTP
IO::File
HTTP::Request
HTTP::Response
LWP::UserAgent

and one external program: 'unzip' (the directory of the unzip binary needs to be in the $PATH environment variable.)

To install the required modules, you can use the following from the CPAN shell:

To enter the CPAN shell:
perl -MCPAN -e shell

To install modules:
cpan> install Bundle::libnet
cpan> install Bundle::LWP
cpan> install IO
cpan> quit

</quote>

EDIT: Forgot to include the url to fprot's help

I never could get the automatic update working due to Perl/CPAN errors.
But it is easy to use wget to download the updates from F-Prot.
Do a shell script if desired.

Thanks 2damncommon,

I was really trying to found out if I was going something wrong but from your post, I can see that others had the same problem. I guess I will write the script to get it going. Thanks again for the info.

Just to let you know. I finally was able to get F-Prot check-updates.pl running. All I can say is that I was doing everything right just not often enough!!!! I had to run the following from the CPAN shell 5 times before it worked.

cpan> install Bundle::libnet
cpan> install Bundle::LWP
cpan> install IO
cpan> quit

Now I can move on to the next project. But I would like to Thank all of you for your input, It did help me to stay focus on the problem.

Again Thanks.
