must be the CVS checkout as when using slashcode-2.2.6 I was able to install without any errors and now sections, topics, blocks etc all show up fine.
For the packaging department :) probably need the CVS tree fixed
OK I tried to install slashcode with all modules selected (this is at the install-slashsite stage) and got an error:
Error:Slash::Install:/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux/Slash/Install.pm:368:virtuser='virtslash' -- hostinfo='Localhost via UNIX socket' -- Table 'slashdb.sections' doesn't exist -- INSERT into sections (section, artcount, title) VALUES ('newsvac', 0, 'NewsVac Links')
Which was called by:Slash::Install:/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux/Slash/Install.pm:167
=== (NewsVac) Failed on :INSERT into sections (section, artcount, title) VALUES ('newsvac', 0, 'NewsVac Links'):
The site is working but maybe sections isn't.
I checked /usr/local/slash/sql/mysql/schema.sql and there's no table named sections being created there. This is the CVS checkout from about four days back. Could this be a broken source problem?
