libperl.so missing or wrong version found on Linux

Have a development CentOS box that I've created a binary to run on another Linux box that did not have perl. All worked well up until recently. The runtime box was recently updated. It now has Perl 5.8.8 (non-activestae build) and some other pkg updates... but it is still basically the same OS (32bit CentOS 2.6.18).

Now when the binary is executed it reports libperl.so found at /usr/lib/perl5/... not an ActiveState binary. Which is true.... but what is this an issue now?

the /tmp gets the pdk-xxxx/ dir with the libperl.so from the binary but never seems to be referenced.

PerlApp created executable not running with nonexec permission on /tmp directory

Hi,

We are using PerlApp to create freestanding executable from perl script.
When the executable built with PerlApp runs, it extracts its dynamic object files in the /tmp/pdk directory. However, it is not working on those systems which have some security permission like nonexec and non writable on /tmp directory.

Our application run on different ports and the problem is same on Window,Linu and AIX platform.

Komodo won't start on linux due to missing symbol

Question: 

Komodo won't start on linux, complains about gdk_window_get_visual symbol

Answer: 

On certain older (mostly RedHat based) linux distros Komodo will fail to start with the following error:

undefined symbol: gdk_window_get_visual

To fix this error you simply need to install the "gdk-pixbuf2" package. The name varies per distro, but searching for "pixbuf" should get you the right package name.

Corrupted Files when running the ActivePerl Linux installer

Question: 

When I run the installer, it reports that several files are corrupted. I see this error:
This installer package does not have the expected content. Please try to download a fresh copy of ActivePerl from ActiveState's website at activestate.com. If you still have problems please contact us at SupportEmail.

How do I fix this?

Answer: 

---Updated 03/18:
This FAQ applies to ALL ActivePerl Linux tarball installers.
A link to a current version has been specified solely for convenience

Trash the ActivePerl folder you extracted. Download a fresh copy, and do not open the Download with the Linux Archive Manager.

Archive Managers use an incompatible algorithm.

Go to a Terminal Window, and extract the file on the command line, using GNUtar instead:

tclapp or tclcompiler

Hay guys,
I am a little bit confuse about tclapp and tclcompiler. Actually, my objection is simple: to warp a tcl to become an platform-independent executable file.

1. I have reviewed tcl_compiler_reference and seems like it's the one I need. And what's the difference between tclapp and tclcompiler?

No starkit due to no "base-tcl-<platform>" and "base-tk-<platform>" on the installation folder

Hay Guys,
I am a new user to this TDK. Lately I found some issues when using the evaluation version of tclapp.

I download the evaluation package for linux x64 machine by choosing Linux(x86_64) from : Download Site. After I installed it on my machine, please notice that it doesn't have any base-tcl- and base-tk- folder.

Installation of tcl8.5 (32-bit) on ubuntu 12.04 64-bit - Any issues?

- Downloaded "ActiveTcl8.5.15.0.297577-linux-ix86-threaded "
- run the install.sh but, that failed with error saying ./payload/bin/wish8.5 - no such file or directory
- I have manually install tk from ubuntu repos and have changed the install.sh to point to /usr/bin/wish8.5

Observation:

(i) The above steps helped me get the GUI for installation but, installation failed when it tried to open teacup with error "no such file or directory"

ppm install failed: 503 Service Unavailable

I recently had to reinstall our ActivePerl 5.16.3 installation (which went fine) and then reinstall the CPAN modules that we use. I do this by doing a series of 11 ppm calls.

Ten of the ppm invocations executed completely correctly - so there shouldn't be a connectivity issue - but one of them failed. I was unable to install Config::Simple, getting the message below:

ppm install Config::Simple
