Forum OpenACS Q&A: Package Manager Problem ?
I noticed a problem with the package manager in a recently downloaded, freshly installed OpenACS instance.
It seems that the dependency check is not working, as i cannot install any package that needs acs-messaging, templating ... Of course all of these packages get installed on first boot.
As this problem is a very prominent one probably someone has found an easy cure for it ?
Which RDBMS - Oracle or PG - are you using?
I've also run into a couple of situations where the installer gets stuck in an infinite loop after the "Loading Package Info Files" screen--just after you click "Next".
Sorry I don't have more info for you.
So ... first guess is that our nightly tarballs are hosed again (damn).
Can you tell me a specific package that fails? I'll try that with my CVS-derived version.
Well, general-comments for example complained about the missing acs-messaging. And the glossary package complained about missing acs-templating.
I will try to get the files via CVS and try that way.
<ul><li> Clean Install (new db)
<li> Install Package
<li> General Comments does not install (Requires acs-messaging of version >= 4.0)
<p>Too bad !
<p>A quick look into the error-log did not reveal any problems there. The install worked perfectly so far. I am using Aolserver 3.3+ad13 with Postgresql 7.1.3.
After some playing around i think the problem is on my side:
select apm_package_version__version_name_greater('4.0.1', '4.0'); returns -1.
Could this be a problem with a wrong collation order or something like that ?
Brilliant suggestions eagerly accepted ...
I am *really* glad to hear it doesn't appear to be a problem with nightly tarballs because I really did think they were working.
