Hello Friends,

I'm just trying to install the annotation server an FreeBSD 6.1. I
followed the Server HOWTO under
and I am done so far.

Apache 1.3 is configured and everything should be fine, but:

2 issues that I don't understand:

If I am trying to get access under http://<server>/annotations the
script is telling me that the users file doesn't exist. But I used the
following command to create a user:

# dbmmanage /usr/local/etc/apache/users add martin martin
User martin added with password encrypted to martin using crypt

And the script outputs the following text:

failed to execute $self->{USER_RECORDS} = new
W3C::Annotations::DBMUserRecords(-errorHandler => $self, -type=>'dbm',
-file=>/usr/local/etc/apache/users);: No such file or directory
W3C::Util::Exception thrown at

So, That's not true!

The second issue is, that I read something about the Makefile.PL:
"Makefile.PL attempts to find a user/password database and check the
format, however, you may need to intercede if it fails."

So, I started it:

[root@server /usr/local/perl/modules/W3C/Database]# perl Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Warning: the following files are missing in your kit:
Please inform the author.
Warning: prerequisite W3C::Util::Basekit 0.91 not found.
Could not open 'Basekit.pm': No such file or directory at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm line 2649.

Then I checked this if the server is not complete installed ( I did
this like in the HowTo explained):

[root@server /usr/local/perl/modules/W3C/Database]# cd ..
[root@server /usr/local/perl/modules/W3C]# cd ..
[root@server /usr/local/perl/modules]# find . -name Base*

So, the Basekit.pm is there.... but the Makefile cannot find this!?!?

I'm really stucking at this.

Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you very much,
