 Can't locate Babel.pm
 Posted on: 07/22/08 at 18:22:26

Hi everyone,

While it feels strange to be one asking for help on installing the new web-app, I must go ahead and ask.  I am doing the standard installation of version 1.0 and am on dreamhost servers.  After unpackaging the script, I click on Default Installation and receive the following error message:


code:

Software error:

Can't locate Babel.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ../Modules_ ../Modules /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at default.cgi line 405.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at default.cgi line 405.

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (webmaster@ehs89.org), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.



Where is bable.pm supposed to be located.  From what I recall of the genesis project, it was a file within webapp.  Is it now a perl module?  Either way, what can I do to fix it?

Thanks,

John...

Hi John!

It looks like a messy install.
because of this path:

code:
../Modules_ ../Modules



Modules_ is a temporally setup folder.

I suggest that you remove the entire install folder to a "/delete_later"  folder and get the latest package (updated last week) and make a new install.

Not sure that this is the cause, but is very important that you start the install from the html folder and not click the setup.cgi.

You are only supposed to unzip the package once when downloading it, and later the program would execute itself and extract its files from the binary files there.

It should be written in the readme.txt file.

I had the same problem at first then realized there was (a new to me) feature that unzipped the files during the setup.

What is so peculiar, that only the advanced users have had this problem, I guess its either because they unzipped completely the package (which they can not do any longer after we added Benson's suggestion, bin files), or... they go straight to the setup.cgi file!  Will add some function that identifies it and either send them back to the start page or notify them about the possible errors that may follow (incomplete install).
