Description Christoph Lange 2010-11-16 14:21:23 UTC
After upgrading from Perl 5.8 to 5.12, WML no longer works.  The following problem occurs when running it, e.g. executing a file with a #!/usr/bin/wml header:

$ ./file.wml
Can't locate File/PathConvert.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib64/wml/perl/lib/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/wml/perl/lib /home/clange/lib/perl/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux /home/clange/lib/perl/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /home/clange/svn/kwarc.info/stex/trunk/bin /usr/local/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux /usr/local/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib64/perl/lib /usr/lib64/perl/lib/x86_64-linux /etc/perl /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.12.2/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.12.2 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.2/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.2 /usr/lib64/perl5/5.12.2/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/5.12.2 /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/wml line 52.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/wml line 52.

(Please ignore the 5.8.8 components in the path, this is because I haven't rebooted since the Perl 5.12 upgrade.)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have the given packages installed
2. run WML


Expected Results:  
Not sure whether any result should be _expected_ at all.  IIUC the problem is that File/PathConvert is no longer maintained.  WML has a bundled version, which the ebuild doesn't install.  I tried to install it myself (simply extracted it from the WML tarball), but apparently it doesn't work with Perl 5.12:

 object version 2.30 does not match $::VERSION %_ at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.12.2/x86_64-linux/DynaLoader.pm line 223.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/wml line 54.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/wml line 54.

I don't know how to interpret this error message, but I guess it's related to incompatible Perl versions.

Unfortunately, upstream is no longer maintaining WML.  Therefore, maybe, the ebuild should get a !>=dev-lang/perl-5.12 block, and eventually be removed :-(
Comment 1 Christoph Lange 2010-11-16 14:24:06 UTC
Note: I didn't test with the (stable) previous version wml-2.0.11-r3, but I assume it would rather be worse than better.

This one does not even compile.  Here is the Perl-related output:

Comment 3 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2010-11-17 19:01:05 UTC
I had a quick look and it seems that the problem is that the wml_common parts are no longer getting installed:

===> wml_common/filepathconvert (install)
make[2]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/wml-2.0.11-r6/work/wml-2.0.11/wml_common/filepathconvert'
chmod: missing operand after `755'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.
make[2]: *** [/.exists] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/wml-2.0.11-r6/work/wml-2.0.11/wml_common/filepathconvert'
<=== wml_common/filepathconvert

The make system doesn't abort on this error so it's not immediately obvious that this is the issue.

Unfortunately I couldn't easily reproduce this or determine a fix for it. To be honest, and given the amount of patching we already do, I think that masking and then removing dev-lang/wml is probably the best thing to do. If people want to contribute patches then I'm happy to keep it around, but I won't invest my time. Bonus points for fixing the reported QA issues with wml :-/
