Unable to install KinoSearch


I want to install KinoSearch. I'm running centOS 7.

KinoSearchPlugin and KinoSearchContrib seems to be installed correctly as I can see the Kino's tabs in the Extensions page :


and http://myfoswiki/System/KinoSearch is working and let me execute a search.


The issue is comming when I try to search something. I get:


I thing all the necessary perl modules and packages are installed except perl-KinoSearch-0.165-3.el6.x86_64.rpm

When I try "yum install perl-KinoSearch-0.165-3.el6.x86_64.rpm", I get the following error:

Error: Package: perl-KinoSearch-0.165-3.el6.x86_64 (/perl-KinoSearch-0.165-3.el6.x86_64)
Requires: perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.10.1)

Another point: When I execute kinoindex script, it return:


My question:

Is perl 5.10 mandatory or any newer version of perl is supported by KinoSearch ?

Actually perl 5.16 is installed.


Thanks for your help.

Hi Vincent, kino search isn't supported anymore for a very long time. However there is a good alternative that you can try - SolrPlugin - providing a decent fulltext search engine.

Hi Michael, You save me a lot of time smile

I'm not sure to find the right answer. Is able Solr to index the content of the attachements (word, exel, pdf..) like KinoSearch ?
