Item230: lib/CPAN/lib missing in INC path

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.0.0
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
Component: configure, might be global

Last Change By: KwangErnLiew
I am using a fresh trunk checkout.


  1. Installing with pseud-install default
  2. chown: All direcotries are owned by the script user.
  3. adding my DocRoot path to LocalLib.cfg in bin ( renaming )
  4. creating data/.htpasswd


Running bin/configrue, then lookin in the CGi-Setup tab is see this error under the "Foswiki module in @INC path"
Error: could not be loaded. The error was:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: /var/www/ /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl) at /var/www/ line 50.

Something is broken in setlib.cfg

Nothing is broken in setlib.cfg; the normal installation procedure for a checkout works perfectly. I have no idea what your DocRoot path is, nor why you would add it to LocalLib.cfg. The only things in LocalLib.cfg should be:
$twikiLibPath = "/home/foswiki/trunk/core/lib";

I'm afraid I'd have to agree it might not be setlib.cfg, but there is something broken.

If I read setlib.cfg correctly, if his $twikiLibPath/lib/CPAN/lib exists, it should add a few things in @INC. From what I could test, it does add them (added some debugging at the end of setlib.cfg), but I never could see them being added through the @INC which is displayed on configure.

So there is something fishy in the Kingdom of Danemark. But I'm not sure setlib.cfg is to blame.

Problem seems to be fixed for me with changeset:

Can i close the bug or does someone still have problems? EugenMayer 23 Von 18:22
Normal practice is to say "Closing this as fixed. Anyone who still has problems please re-open it". That way we avoid having too many half-open bugs in the DB.

Additional note: This seems to be same bug as TWikibug:Item6154 so we have fixed this. Great
