Install problem - Can't locate MultiPart.pm

I am trying to install Gossamer forum on my server for evaluation but I get the following error each time I have attempted at install...

[Sat Apr 10 12:30:01 2004] [error] Can't locate GT/CGI/MultiPart.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl . /etc/httpd/ /etc/httpd/lib/perl) at (actual path removed)/www/cgi-bin/install.cgi line 3239.

I have tried running install.cgi using mod_perl and under standard cgi with the same results.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated?

Sorry about the late reply!

You are getting this running install.cgi? That's _very_ strange, as that module should only be loaded if you are attempting to do a file upload, and there are no file upload fields in the install page.

At what point do you get this error (calling install.cgi for the first time, after selecting fresh install, or after submitting install info)?

Hi Alex,

I was getting the error calling install.cgi for the first time.

I ended up installing from the command line, which worked fine, but I was then getting the "ContentType: Text/HTML" HTTP response header printed at the top of each page. I then set PerlSendHeader to On for the cgi directory and that seemed to fix the response header issue.

I then went back to see if the repsonse header problem was causing the failure of install.cgi and install.cgi now seemed to work when run from the browser.

Long story short...

Setting PerlSendHeader On, as stated in your documentation, seemed to fix my install.cgi problem.

Does this sound right to you?
