Re: How do I report a problem?

Hello Dominic,

Thank you very much for the quick answer. The reportbug tool is installed.

The module is installed via synaptic. My system uses the normal online depository. It's definitely not from CPAN, the only chance for another source would be backports. So I looked for the version of the module: It's 0.45.

But may be there is something else wrong. In my script I circumnavigated the problem by setting the locale to english before calling Proc::ProcessTable. The module had now no problem with error messages but failed with another message: "Can't locate auto/Proc/ProcessTable/pid.al in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .)" That's true, locate doesn't find any pid.al file. How is this file created? As a post-installation processing?

Any ideas? Shall I report a bug about the OS-error ($!) comparison?

In Proc::ProcessTable::AUTOLOAD line 30 there is a simple comparison "if ($! ~= /Invalid/)" which is okay only for english error messages. My message is in german and so the comparison always fails which makes the module little useful.

Are you using the libproc-processtable-perl Debian package, or have you
installed it manually (or via CPAN, etc)?

This sounds like a bug, and not one reported against the package in the
Debian bug tracking system[1] or upstream bugtracking system[2].

If you're using the Debian package, the best way for you to report this
is probably to use the reportbug tool which should be included with your
Debian system (if not, install it using the reportbug package), which
will help you formulate a bug report to the Debian BTS. If appropriate,
the package maintainers (many of whom will probably read this thread
anyway) might be able to help by investigating further and forwarding
the report upstream.

Best wishes,
