Subject: Sybperl "make test" hangs on RedHat 9
Date: Apr 25 2003 3:50PM

Hello there,

A quick post to see if anyone experienced this:


I've tried to install sybperl-2.15 on a RedHat 9 (kernel 2.4.20-9smp) , 
along with a fresh perl distrib and an ASE-12.5.
Everything goes fine until I run  make test, which hangs indefinitely 
with the first BCP test:

/[root@pastis sybperl-2.151]# make test
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/BCP'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/BCP'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/BLK'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/BLK'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/CTlib'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/CTlib'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/DBlib'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/DBlib'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/Sybperl'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/Sybperl'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/sybperl-2.151/BCP'
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" 
"test_harness(0, '../blib/lib', '../blib/arch')" t/*.t
t/bcp....
/

Then hangs, need Ctrl-C to get out of it.
My perl installation is a  5.8.0 from source, with following libs:/
[root@pastis sybperl-2.151]# perl -V:libs
libs='-lnsl -ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt -lutil';
/
I can't see where the issue would be. I've followed the several FAQs on 
the subject to avoid general errors (perl libs, locales.dat file, etc.) 
but I have no clue for this one.
Actually, I ended up installing it anyway and so far it's been working 
fine. I use dbschema to get text dumps from several servers... So only 
reading for now.



Thx for any hint,
