hi ,

I get the following error message on one of my system that I maintain

Command died with status 255: "/var/spool/vacation/vacation.pl".
Command output: Global symbol "$smtp_client" requires explicit package name at /var/spool/vacation/vacation.pl line 493.
Execution of /var/spool/vacation/vacation.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

The OS is 64 bits ubunutu 10.04. ,vacation.pl from the version before the patch 04/19/2012 Nikolaos Topp works well, it uses the same perl modules as the later version.

On the other systems which are also running under OS ubuntu 4.10 64 bit it all works well !
question? which module ( requires explicit package) is missing for perl.

i also reinstalled the perl modules again.

Regards Jan

  • I'd guess you don't have the line
    our $smtp_client = 'localhost';
    in the configuration section of vacation.pl (it's in the code in SVN, but maybe you broke it while editing the config) - and I'd also guess there would be more reports if this was a common problem.

    I'm closing the report as "worksforme" - feel free to reopen if my above guess is wrong.
