Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Errors Upgrading from 5.5 to 5.8 (:acs::pageroot": no such variable)
probably, you did not upgrade the toplevel tcl file (on cvs checkouts
In order to get the released version from the oacs-5-8 branch (which is in the openacs-5-8.tar.gz bundle), use the tag "openacs-5-8-0-final". Otherwise you get the latest version from the oacs-5-8 branch that will turn at some time into the next release. The latest from oacs-5-8 is working fine either, but contains more than thousand file changes, mostly doe to work on getting rid of deprecated calls.
all the best
Ah! Ok, so I should use cvs checkout instead of apm manager. I'll try to do it again (at least to get firstly a 5.7 version)
Thanks so much for your work in this version, it seems very promising !!
