PostPosted: Thu Jun 14, 2012 2:47 am    Post subject: [SOLVED] XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool Reply with quote

I'm stumped :(

I have several ebuilds failing due to this error: checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool
Code:
[ebuild  NS    ] x11-libs/vte-0.32.1 [0.28.2-r203] USE="introspection -debug -doc -glade" 0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] net-print/libgnomecups-0.2.3-r2  USE="-debug" 0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] x11-terms/gnome-terminal-3.4.1.1  0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] gnome-base/libgnomeprint-2.18.8  USE="cups -doc" 0 kB
[ebuild  N     ] gnome-base/libgnomeprintui-2.18.6  USE="-doc" 0 kB
[ebuild     U  ] media-sound/pulseaudio-2.0-r1 [2.0] USE="X alsa asyncns avahi caps dbus gdbm glib gnome* gtk%* ipv6 orc ssl tcpd udev webrtc-aec -bluetooth -doc -equalizer -jack -libsamplerate -lirc (-oss) -realtime (-system-wide) -test -xen%" 0 kB

In checking the configure file the error occurs at:
Code:
$as_echo_n "checking for XML::Parser... " >&6; }
   if `$INTLTOOL_PERL -e "require XML::Parser" 2>/dev/null`; then
       { $as_echo "$as_me:${as_lineno-$LINENO}: result: ok" >&5
$as_echo "ok" >&6; }
   else
       as_fn_error $? "XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool" "$LINENO" 5
   fi
fi

Issuing
Code:
 perl -e "require XML::Parser"
on the cl results with:
Code:
root@gentoo-ws490 vte-0.32.1 # perl -e "require XML::Parser"
Can't locate XML/Parser.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib64/perl5/5.16.0/x86_64-linux /usr/local/lib64/perl5/5.16.0 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.16.0/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.16.0 /usr/lib64/perl5/5.16.0/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/5.16.0 .) at -e line 1.

If I run the same command on another system that compiled puleaudio, nothing is returned.

Any clues would be appreciated :D

Is dev-perl/XML-Parser installed?

jburns,

Thanks for the reply :D and yes it is.
Code:
[IP-] [  ] dev-perl/XML-Parser-2.410.0

That's another reason I was scratching the hair out of my head :cry:

I just found the problem though - somehow dev-lang/perl-5.16.0:0 was installed on the computer exhibiting the error. The one that was OK was at dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r2 :?

Here's the equery from both:
Code:
root@gentoo-gateway bill # equery l -p perl
 * Searching for perl ...
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.8.8-r8:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.10.1:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.3-r1:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.4:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r1:0
[IP-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r2:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.14.1:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.14.1-r1:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.14.2:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.16.0:0


Code:
root@gentoo-ws490 vte-0.32.1 # equery l -p perl
 * Searching for perl ...
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.8.8-r8:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.10.1:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.3-r1:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.4:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r1:0
[-P-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r2:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.14.1:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.14.1-r1:0
[-P-] [M ] dev-lang/perl-5.14.2:0
[IP-] [  ] dev-lang/perl-5.16.0:0

I unmerged dev-lang/perl-5.16.0, emerged 5.12.4-r2 then masked >dev-lang/perl-5.12.4-r2 and all compiled after that :D

Now, I'm scratching my head trying to figure out how perl jumped to 5.16 and why it's masked on the other computer when both are the same architecture and using the same repos :?

Thanks again for your reply :wink:

Got the same error here on a fresh Gentoo install.

Then I ran "perl-cleaner --reallyall" after read yngwin's tip and everything runs smooth again.

Thanks for help.

one perl update and after perl-cleaner --reallyall, I noticed that 64 (!) packages were missing....
And I was wondering why specific packages failed to emerge lately...

I just installed the module with cpan along with the Zip.pm module that was causing an ebuild to fail as well. I guess perl-cleaner would have done the same thing.

I think the devs should have either put out a news item with the release of the new version of perl
Or put a message into the ebuild Or both.

It's been so long since I had to run perl-cleaner, that I forgot all about it and had to google to find out what to do.

Yeah I don't even know when I upgraded to 5.16 but I don't recall a message about running this, and it seems to be absolutely necessary to run after an upgrade. Guessing the 5.16 bump in December caught more than a couple people off guard. For Google, I didn't notice any problems until udev-208 was failing to compile with the error checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool.

perl-cleaner --reallyall was what I was looking for, thank you.
Total: 160 packages (160 reinstalls), Size of downloads: 0 kB. Did I win anything? :wink:

I am sure if my understanding needs improving, someone will be along soon!
Until then: perl-cleaner identifies packages installed with the earlier version of perl, and re-emerges them for the latest version you have installed. This avoids any problems arising from changes from one version of perl to the next. It does install a simple man page if you want to see the options available.
