foswiki on Solaris10 issues


I've got two issues installing foswiki 1.0.5 on Solaris 10/sparc. This is mostly based on , using the preinstalled apache and perl installations.

  • configure always says 'Error: 'diff' was not found on the current PATH'. It's installed (the sunfreeware package, in /usr/local/bin/diff), and I also extended the current path with /usr/local/bin:
Current PATH /usr/local/bin:/appl/wiki/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin

- this just turned out a missing libintl - now configure is quiet. smile

  • creating new versions of a file doesn't work:

Error saving topic

During save of WebTTTTttt an error was found by the version control system. Please notify your Foswiki administrator.

/usr/local/bin/ci  -m%COMMENT|U% -t-none -w%USERNAME|S% -u %FILENAME|F% of .../Sandbox/WebTTTTttt.txt failed:  

Go back in your browser and save your changes locally.

Maybe these two are connected to each other, so that's why I put it in the same topic.

- also solved with libintl.



Seems my foswiki installation is now working. And all the other users should make sure 'diff' is actually working. /usr/local/bin/diff --version should spit out the version number instead of complaining about libintl.

That's good news. Please update the cookbook with any wrinkles, tips or tricks you found.

I am not sure why this topic got closed. But I still get the problem

/usr/bin/ci -m%COMMENT|U% -t-none -d%DATE|D% -u -w%USERNAME|S% %FILENAME|F% of .../somename.txt failed: 1
