Bugzilla Installation – Perl Modules


I was wondering if anybody got Bugzilla installed on FC4?

At the moment I’m trying to get my bug server up and running but I’m dealing with a couple of issues:

As per the manual I did the following:


I managed to get a couple of Perl modules installed, and currently my output of ./checksetup.pl is as follows:

[root@devrofed01 bugzilla-2.18.3]# cd ./checksetup.pl
-bash: cd: ./checksetup.pl: Not a directory
[root@devrofed01 bugzilla-2.18.3]#  ./checksetup.pl

Checking perl modules ...
Checking for       AppConfig (v1.52)   ok: found v1.56
Checking for             CGI (v2.93)   ok: found v3.10
Checking for    Data::Dumper (any)     ok: found v2.121_02
Checking for    Date::Format (v2.21)   ok: found v2.22
Checking for             DBI (v1.36)   ok: found v1.48
Checking for      DBD::mysql (v2.1010) ok: found v2.9007
Checking for      File::Spec (v0.82)   ok: found v3.01
Checking for      File::Temp (any)     ok: found v0.14
Checking for        Template (v2.08)    not found
Checking for      Text::Wrap (v2001.0131) ok: found v2001.09292

The following Perl modules are optional:
Checking for              GD (v1.20)   ok: found v2.28
Checking for     Chart::Base (v1.0)     not found
Checking for     XML::Parser (any)     ok: found v2.34
Checking for       GD::Graph (any)     ok: found v1.43
Checking for GD::Text::Align (any)     ok: found v1.18
Checking for     PatchReader (v0.9.4)  ok: found v0.9.5

If you you want to see graphical bug charts (plotting historical data over
time), you should install libgd and the following Perl modules:

Chart:       /usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Chart::Base"'

Bugzilla requires some Perl modules which are either missing from your
system, or the version on your system is too old.
They can be installed by running (as root) the following:
   /usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Template"'
   Minimum version required: 2.08
For some reason I can’t get the last two modules, “Template” and “Chart::Base”” installed.

I did also try to force install it by using:

/usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "Template"'


/usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "Chart::Base"'
Still I can’t get the 2 modules installed…

This is my output of /usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "Template"' :

Failed Test   Stat Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of Failed
t/dbi.t                     63    2   3.17%  14-15

  /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
[root@devrofed01 bugzilla-2.18.3]#
I’ve been searching for answers but no success to date. Please, if anybody will be able to assist me or give me some guidelines with this I will appreciate it.

yum search perl*Template* perl*Chart*

Then install the package(s) that look like the right target(s). Probably perl-Text-Template and perl-Chart.
