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


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


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


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


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?


---Updated 10/18:
This FAQ applies to ALL ActivePerl Linux tarball installers.
A link to a current version has been specified solely for convenience
There are two possible causes.

1) If you used the command line "tar" to extract the archive, and tar reported this:
"tar: Removing leading / from member names"
the version of tar you have installed is removing leading slashes by default as a security measure. This will break the ActivePerl installer. Delete the extracted folder and run tar with different options.
"tar -zxPf (filename for the ActivePerl installer tarball with extensions.)"

2) If you allowed your browser to extract the tarball, it will have use the Linux Archive Manager. Trash the ActivePerl folder you extracted. Download a fresh copy, and do not open the Download with the Linux Archive Manager.
Go to a Terminal Window, and extract the file on the command line, using GNUtar instead:
You may still hit the leading slash issue if your tar has that default behaviour.

ActiveTcl with tbcload 1.4 is needed

Hay all,
I need download ActiveTcl with tbcload version 1.4.
I have tried to download ActiveTcl from Download_Site , but the it is using tbcload version 1.6.

I have also requested from Request_Site but I don't know how long it will take until I am allowed to download it.

Any suggestion is appreciated!
Thank you very much.

Best regards,

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. "
- 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


(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
