Git broken in Slackware 12.1
Actually, it works fine if you only do Git stuff. However, I tried to pull my Subversion repository using git-svn clone. And this is what I got:
Can’t locate Error.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Git.pm line 93. BEGIN failed—compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Git.pm line 93. Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/git-svn line 45. BEGIN failed—compilation aborted at /usr/bin/git-svn line 45.
Trying to find Error.pm and install it turned out to be a nightmare -
and I decided to wake up before spending more than 2+ hours trying to
make this work. I’ll just take the current state of SVN repository
and import that into Git as a starting point… losing a year’s
worth of history.
Nevermind, life goes on. I hope Pat will fix this in next Slackware release.
