Irssi not working - Perl module?

intimidat0r@phork ~ $ irssi
Can't locate Symbol.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at (eval 9) line 9.

I understand that this means a Perl module is missing (I guess it's not installed, it's probably not installed but absent from the path). How would I go about installing it?

And why is it talking about compilation on the last line?

Thanks.

Re: Irssi not working - Perl module?

$ locate Symbol.pm
/usr/lib/perl5/current/Symbol.pm
/usr/lib/perl5/current/i686-linux-thread-multi/Encode/Symbol.pm

$pacman -Qo /usr/lib/perl5/current/Symbol.pm
/usr/lib/perl5/current/Symbol.pm is owned by perl 5.8.8-5

Symbol.pm is a core perl module and should be installed.  Try:

# updatedb && locate Symbol.pm

This will tell you if Symbol.pm is installed.  If it isn't, I guess you could try reinstalling perl.

Re: Irssi not working - Perl module?

I had this problem, and doing

sudo pacman -S perl

reinstalling perl, did the trick

Can confirm this. But irssi didn't give me an error message. Just refused to start. Though, reinstalling perl did the trick.

Re: Irssi not working - Perl module?

Ive had the same problem with perl yesterday on a fresh install, and pacman -Syu did the trick there also.

Re: Irssi not working - Perl module?

This was certainly weird.

Got 3 boxes running arch duke which have
been running for some time, irssi quit
working on 2 of those comps at the same
time, no error message tho'.

And this happened without upgrading the system (pacman -Suy).

Odd? or not?
