as i try to install Mozrepl and Mechanize::FireFox on a OpenSuse-Linux-Box i run into issues. See some of them. note - this was a earlier try - with the version 0.58
Task::Mechanistic::Firefox to track the dependencies during installing
But the issues are still the same. But - we have some better way now. There is a packaged version available. I give it a try. See below. what do you think about this !?
on a sidenote: Well we tried to install www::mechanize::firefox through CPAN. The hard thing is that i face that CPAN does not handle all dependencies, Isn't it supposed to handle all dependencies automatically? We see that there are loads of dependencies that need to be installed before we can install Mechanize. I see that i run sometimes into serious problems.- See the make issues(below) that i often run into!
I heard about this package at CPAN: Task::Mechanistic::Firefox wihch contains lots of stuff that is needed. see detailed inof at the CPAN-Page:
what do you say!?
Khen, the guy that put together all this told this - since there are loads of dependencies that need to be installed before we can install Mechanize. Sure, CPAN does exactly what it is told to do. The authors of the dependencies are supposed to to tell it to install prerequisites: however, apparently they don't always do that, so some dependencies end up in the wind, causing the problems that we are encountering.
So what do you think, should we give this mentioned package a try!? With it we have a better way now. There is a packaged version available. Hmm - guess i give it a try. what do you say?
again the package at CPAN: Task::Mechanistic::Firefox
love to hear from you
