01:05 mib_nhdgvn joined #padre
01:06 mib_nhdgvn help
01:11 mib_nhdgvn sorry if this is old hat, IM trying to install Padre on Strawberry perl and I'm having problems
01:15 atcroft I don't know that I will have an answer for you (I don't remember how I managed to get it installed under Strawberry), but I'll try (or at least listen).
01:16 mib_nhdgvn thanks
01:16 mib_nhdgvn I installed Alien::WxWidgets with no problem
01:17 mib_nhdgvn but when I installed Wx it fails in the final link phase
01:18 mib_nhdgvn ld fails with "bad value"
01:21 mib_q2ve6h joined #padre
01:21 mib_q2ve6h sorry Firefox crashed
01:27 atcroft What happens if you do 'cpan --install Wx --force'?
01:27 atcroft (Or whatever your favorite cpan client is...)
01:33 mib_q2ve6h ok, hold on
01:39 mib_q2ve6h it says "could not make: unknown error"
01:43 atcroft Which cpan client are you using?
01:43 mib_q2ve6h the one that comes with strawberry perl
01:44 atcroft I'm just searching through possible things about problems installing Wx, so thought I should ask.
01:44 mib_q2ve6h np
01:46 atcroft Can you try this: cpan -i Wx
01:47 mib_q2ve6h sure
01:50 atcroft mib_q2ve6h: I'm looking at two links at the moment, http://www.wxperl.it/p/download.html and http://padre.perlide.org/download/strawberryperl.html
01:53 mib_q2ve6h well looks like my problem is self inflicted
01:54 mib_q2ve6h I have the TDM gcc compiler and the GCC compiler that comes with Strawberry perl
01:54 mib_q2ve6h turns out that the Makefile was using the first ld.exe it found in its path
01:54 mib_q2ve6h and it was the TDM one not the the one with Strawberry Perl
01:55 atcroft Cool! At least you found the problem, so now you can hopefully work through it.
01:55 * atcroft hopes he was of some small help, at least :)
01:55 mib_q2ve6h you were, I didn't notice the problem until you asked me to use cpan -i WX and I actually payed attention to what was happening :)
02:00 atcroft Then glad to have been of service. Hope the rest of your install process is relatively painless.
02:04 mib_q2ve6h :)
