creating puppy linux with mecha


good day dear Linux-Friends,


well i am new to this board and to linux also.

So do not bear with me if i ask nasty questions.
i run openSuse 12.3. but in the past i had several issues with installing some perl packages.

I run into troubles several times - with several openSuse-releases.
guess that i sometimes messed up the installation -

well now i want to try out a new way - i have heard bout puppylinux and i eagerly look for a package that contains

a. mozrepl and
b. Mechanize::FireFox

is this doable - on a Puppy-Live-DVD !?
well i have tried to install all that stuff via

a. Repos of opensuse
b. CPAN

no thing worked either!?

i have had CPAN-Dependencies,

BTW - the OpenSuse-people are somewhat "religios ppl." they do not allow me to install via CPAN - they force me to do all the things by adding a Repository (from opensuse).


But - guess that i have to try out the CPAN-way. It seems to be a good way. The last time i tried to install Mozrepl i did something wrong and i guess that i messed up all the machine. All the things were messed up totally. At the end .- have had errors over errors. it was terrible. see the error reports i have had... btw - i guess that i somethimes have had a bad Make on the machine - or a bad make-test. What do you think"!? here i provide you with the reports of the failed trials of installation ....

Unless you tell us WHAT problems you had, we can't help you solve them. And are you running openSUSE 12.3 NOW, or did you already INSTALL puppy over it?

Perhaps, but you can install those packages separately, so an 'all-in'one' is pointless.

Well, if you're booted/running off a READ ONLY DVD, how would you expect to be able to install anything? All of the system directories are on it, with just your home directory read/writeable. You COULD install locally, but that's a pain.

Sorry, that's absolutely wrong. I have used openSUSE since version 8 (now on 12.3), and have been able to use CPAN with zero problems on ALL of them. I can also install from source package with no problems.

Again, unless you give details about what you did, the error(s) you saw, etc., there's little we can help you with. Installing perl modules from source is like installing an RPM package...unless you have the dependencies installed, it will fail. So, either install via CPAN, or install the dependencies one at a time. No surprises there.

i tried it another time: and i have to say: i have big big troubles whith the installation of Mozrepl-Firefox on OpenSuse 12.4 how can i do this!? Please i need your help:


i start like so;

at the console

PHP Code:
perl -MCPAN -e shell 
well in past The hard thing is that i face that CPAN does not handle all dependencies, Isn't it supposed to handle all dependencies automatically so my cpan configuration should be set to follow prerequisites

PHP Code:
cpano conf prerequisites_policy follow cpano conf commit 

we have got this following;

http://search.cpan.org/~corion/WWW-M...stallation.pod

Alternatively, launch the Firefox binary with the -mozrepl command line switch:


PHP Code:
 firefox -repl 
If tests still fail, especially t/50-click.t and 51-mech-submit.t , this might be because you use the NoScript Mozilla extension and have it blocking Javascript for file:// URLs. While this is good, the tests need Javascript enabled.

PHP Code:
Open t/50-click.html in Firefox
Allow Javascript 
for all file:// URLs 
Re-run tests

PHP Code:
 perl Makefile.PL 
        nmake test 
or if you are using Strawberry Perl or Citrus Perl


PHP Code:
        perl Makefile.PL 
        dmake test 
No test should fail


questions: generally - how can i test which version of configuration i am running. how to check

a. if i run javascriopt or not!?




update; i tried to do the installation - but well it failed:

see full stuff - see here

what can i do now?

TBone if you can help me i would be more than happy.

greetings

say


update:

well it is a pain if we have much text in the commandline. i will do reports with the following way:

At the terminal:
the folliwing steps will help;


first of all we need to be sure that we know what directory we are in.
run the command "script"
We do whatever produces the output we need. It is okay to change directories.
We run the command "exit" or just CTRL-D to exit from the shell.
When done, we will still be in a terminal in the same directory that we noted for step 1.

well that will do / create reports of the full text in the commandline

end of update;

and with that way i can trace the issues that i have with the installation
