Bugzilla error

23 Sep

Setting up Bugzilla for a friend on a slicehost account running RHEL5, I ran into issues following the official installation guide.
After running:
./ --check-modules
/usr/bin/perl --all

The error message I received was:

Can’t exec “–decompress”: No such file or directory

Amazingly, I found no exact matches for this in Google (my google-fu is generally weak, however). It turns out that in order for the module installer to be able to install the modules it needs, there’s a certain module it needs!

yum install perl-Compress-Zlib.x86_64
yum install perl-Archive-Tar.noarch

makes everything happy again.

Nothing earth shattering, but maybe now Google will have an answer if anyone else runs into this.
