I had previously done perl -MCPAN -e 'shell' and get AutoSplit.

find / -name autosplit.ix gives:

root@tibeaux (mailto:root@tibeaux) slimserver # find / -name autosplit.ix
/usr/lib/perl5 /5.8.5/x86_64-linux/auto/DynaLoader/autosplit.ix
root@tibeaux (mailto:root@tibeaux) slimserver #

Also, machine is an AMD64, for what it's worth.

Unfortunately this kind of thing is all too common right now. Many of the new
features of slimserver6.0 required the use of binary Perl modules. Dan is
working to include these for as many platforms as possible, but its not a
complete list yet (with hundreds of possibilities to keep up with).

If you have access to subversion, Dan has placed all the required modules here:
http://svn.slimdevices.com/vendor/src (i think that's the right url)

or you can get via viewcvs:

you can then compile them for your system.

su -c 'perl -MCPAN -e "install Compress::Zlib"' should work for this particular

I get most of mine from the last method, so I'm afraid I'm not able to give much
more detail on the compiling. I'll have to leave that to Dan.

I'll be writing up instructions for this (and maybe even a wrapper program).

After you've downloaded all the .gz files, run:

for i in *.gz; do tar xfvz $i; rm $i;done

That will unpack them.

Then in each directory, run: perl Makefile.PL; make; make test; make install

Perl will handle all the build flags for you.

DBI also must be compiled and installed before DBD::SQLite

The files that are important to get back to me are the .so ones.


<Djall> and I also learned that a meat vortex takes meat away from you.

Yes - there should be a number of .so files that were created.

If you could send those along, with the output of perl -V, it'd be much appreciated.
