Hi to all,

The library system (koha) I am using require XML::LibXSLT. While trying to compile koha and run “make test” I got following error:

#   Failed test 'use C4::RotatingCollections;'
#   at t/00-load.t line 32.
#     Tried to use 'C4::RotatingCollections'.
#     Error:  Can't load '/usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/auto/XML/LibXSLT/LibXSLT.so' for module XML::LibXSLT: /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/auto/XML/LibXSLT/LibXSLT.so: undefined symbol: xsltRegisterLocalRVT at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line

Can anyone help with this?
Thanks you

This URL would help you to Debugging load library path issues.


If you found that required package is not installed on your box and If you are using the RHEL 5 then you can know the package which containes the the dependent library file by executing the below given command.

# rpm -q --redhatprovides LibXSLT.so

you need rpmdb-redhat package to be installed on your system to use this option.

I get same error for

Tried to use 'C4::Labels'.
Tried to use 'C4::Circulation'

do you think that is to do with dependacy, I am getting into a point were I don't know what to do???

I did run following:
$ perl -v
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi

$ /sbin/ldconfig -v | grep libxslt
        libxslt.so.1 -> libxslt.so.1.1.17

$ xslt-config --libs
-L/usr/lib64 -lxslt -lxml2 -lz -lm

$ xslt-config --cflags

I do really need help with this, i am not familiar with perl at all?

How do you install "XML::LibXSLT" module for perl?
# perl -MCPAN -e "install XML::LibXSLT"
install rpm from rpmforge?

can't install from CPAN, as CPAN try to fetch XML::LibXSLT v1.70, and this version require libxslt 1.1.18 and higher on RHEL5 only 1.1.17, is available and can't be updated or removed as it has lots of dependancy, then I install rpm:
