Newbie: Where to get support for basic Perl problem?

Hello,

I am not a perl programmer. I am trying to implement a Perl Script,
Squeezebox Server (v7.5.0), on a FreeNAS server. the purpose of the
script is to provide a SlimNAS / squeezebox server on an existing
FreeNAS server so I can use my Logitech "client" to access the mp3
music files held on the FreeNAS Server. The installation is all
packaged and documented and the install seems to have completed
correctly as documented.
See http://www.herger.net/slim/detail.php?nr=1026

Now , the simple problem is I can't get the squeezebox server to run
on FreeNAS. It is supposed to work i.e. people have written it works.
I have posted lots of diagnostic info on both squeezebox and freenas
forums. http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...ighlight=clive

However, no one on the forum has come up with a solution. I am
guessing (and it is a guess) there is some problem running the
supplied Perl script(s) on my FreeNAS server. I don't have the
technical knowledge to diagnose nor fix the problem. Can anyone
suggest where will be a good place (if not here) to go for advice and
support?

The script (??) puts out diagnostic messages - that may be significant
- and maybe to do with the Perl script or have nothign to do with
Perl, I just don't know.

[10-06-16 21:05:33.2317] main::init (323) Starting Squeezebox Server
(v7.5.0, r30464, Thu Apr 1 06:28:42 MDT 2010) perl 5.008009
[10-06-16 21:05:33.2853] main::init (400) Warning: Can't locate UUID/

CPAN/arch/5.8/i386-freebsd-64int/auto ..... (lots of libraries
including one that holds Tiny.pm)

Any help to get squeezebox working on FreeNAS will be much
appreciated.

I have no knowledge of this software you are trying to install but
it looks like you need to install some modules from cpan!
Read this web page to learn how:

{quote=

Maybe – but as I wrote the module Tiny.pm is in the search list

{quote=
I dunno what that Tiny.pm might be, but it is not the one that is
being looked for.
It first looks for a *directory* named UUID under one of the
listed @INC dirs, then it looks for a file named Tiny.pm
inside of that UUID/ directory. }

Yes, I understand.
The INC statement has the following references

[10-06-19 09:40:57.7131] main::init (400) Warning: Can't locate UUID/
Tiny.pm in @INC
(@INC contains:
<< Snipped lots of CPAN libraries >>
/mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox/CPAN
/mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.9/BSDPAN
<< snip /usr/local libraries
at /mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox/slimserver.pl line 400.

When I look in
/mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox/CPAN/UUID library on the FreeNAS
server, then “module” Tiny.pm IS in there – so why isn't it being
found and loaded? (I'm not sure if “found” “Loaded” are the correct
Perl terms)


{quote=
Definitely Perl libraries are missing, or are in the wrong place and
can't be found. *But what you say about Tiny.pm actually being in one
of the libraries in the @INC path (like a system path but for Perl
modules) suggests some mis-configuration on installation. }
OK – but do you have a suggestion where I can look for more info to
isolate the problem?

{quote=

Have you seen where it says "If you have any questions or problems,
don't hesitate to contact me in the Squeezebox Server forums. " at the
bottom of the installation page you referred to? *Might be better to
post there first to eliminate Squeezebox-specific problems and narrow
it down to Perl. }
Yes, as in my first post, I gave the link to my posting of the problem
on the squeezebox forum. The author of the script responded (see, in
the thread) but since then has not come up with a solution. I have to
work on the assumption he can't help me diagnose my particular
problem. So, no criticism of him, I'm casting around for others who
may have stronger Perl knowledge to help diagnose the problem, which
is why I posted here with a link back to the work I have done so far.

{quote=
I googled a bit and I found reference to a "build-perl-modules.pl"
script (I know nothing about Squeezebox either) ... maybe there's an
extra step in some environments. }
I very much appreciate your comments but you have left me stumped as
to what to do next.

/mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox/CPAN/UUID is a directory, not a
library.
The module Tiny.pm is there, but obviously this is not where it is
being looked for.

It is being looked for in the directory list specified as @INC.
For perl to find UUID::Tiny.pm, @INC should contain:
/mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox/CPAN

Obviously, it does not.
So, the module may have been incorrectly installed (one answer you
already got).
You might install it correctly.
Or you might try to run your script with:

perl -I/mnt/freenasmount/Slimnas/squeezebox/CPAN <your_script>

This might get you past the first error.
