Perl and PPM problems (includes bug fix)

Postby lduperval » 02. December 2004 23:44


I'm unable to run PPM with the Windows version of XAMMP. Whenever I run it, I get this:

Code: Select all
PPM - Programmer's Package Manager version 3.1.
Copyright (c) 2001 ActiveState Corp. All Rights Reserved.
ActiveState is a devision of Sophos.

Entering interactive shell. Using Term::ReadLine::Stub as readline library.

Type 'help' to get started.

ppm> rep add Bugzilla
[1] ActiveState PPM2 Repository
[2] ActiveState Package Repository
[3] Bugzilla
ppm> install AppConfig
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
Error: connect: Unknown error

I think the error is due to installation problems. When going through the file, I cound that a lot of paths were specified as

Code: Select all

Originally, ppm wouldn't even start, complaining about the registry key. Once I fixed the problems with "c:c:", it ran but with the above result.

Can anyone help me out?
