Description Ville Skyttä 2002-10-05 10:48:10 UTC
The CGI.pm that comes with RH8 doesn't work with the shipped mod_perl-1.99_05-3.
This is a CGI.pm bug, and I've submitted a patch to the author already.

I'll attach the patch here for your convenience, it's against CGI.pm 2.86.

This patch is in the upstream 2.89 release; can you confirm that 2.89 unpatched
also works for you?

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2002-11-05 00:04:45 UTC
Yep, been using a vanilla 2.89 somewhat with mod_perl 1.99 and it seems to work
for me.

Comment 6 Hamadoun Diall 2003-04-02 12:49:57 UTC
This bug is also reported in mod_perl's troubleshooting page 

"You need to install at least version 2.87 of CGI.pm to work under mod_perl 
2.0, as earlier CGI.pm versions aren't mod_perl 2.0 aware"

I've searched in the latest Raw Hide RPMs, as well as the RHL 9 package list, 
and perl-CGI 2.81 is still the only one available... Is a 2.87 (or higher) 
version of this package to be expected anytime soon in the Red Hat distro?

Thanks in advance.

Comment 7 Chip Turner 2004-02-14 02:08:46 UTC
the perl in rawhide includes CGI.pm 3.01 which should resolve this
