    Hi!

    I have a freshly compiled
    Apache/2.2.8 (Ubuntu)
    mod_perl/2.0.4
    Perl/v5.8.8
    After startup Apache error.log is happy with the confirming notice
    ... resuming normal operations

    Running Tests on the localhost confirm equally that mod_perl is working fine (eg. get all the information that $r has to offer ;-)

    The relevant part of my httpd.conf:
    --------------------------------------------
        PerlModule ModPerl::Registry
        PerlSwitches -w
        Alias /perl/ /path/to/perl/
        <Location /perl/>
            SetHandler perl-script
            PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
            Options +ExecCGI
            PerlSendHeader On
        </Location>
        PerlWarn On
        PerlRequire /path/to/startup.pl
    ----------------------------------------------- end httpd.conf

    Now that I decided to give PageKit a try and do the install
    make test stops with

    [  error] You are using mod_perl response handlers
    [  error] but do not have a mod_perl capable Apache.
    make: *** [run_tests] Error 1

    Did I miss the point?

    Search for the error message didn't satisfy me, neither at google nor in the list. Therefor the new thread.

    Does anybody have a clue how a mod_perl handlers using system can't be capaple?

    Thanks!!!
