mod_perl doesn’t play so nice with Gentoo. Perl and, specifically,
g-cpan still seem to have problems.
I’ve been scratching my head (read: driving my head into my desk) over the following error:
Can't locate lib.pm in @INC (@INC contains: blah blah blah) at /etc/apache2/modules.d/apache2-mod_perl-startup.pl line 1.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /etc/apache2/modules.d/apache2-mod_perl-startup.pl line 1.\nCompilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 1.\n
Thanks to an obscure post at the bottom of a thread from a couple of years back I was able to fix it with
# perl-cleaner reallyall
# emerge libperl
perl-cleaner appears to be like
revdep-rebuild, but Larry Wall style.
Now I can run Apache::ASP.
Thank you crazy Larry Wall people.
