t/basewiki_brokenlinks.t was failing with the following error:

When ikiwiki.out is executed the 'blib/lib' directory isn't inherited by the child process. I can add "use lib 'blib/lib'" to ikiwiki.out easily enough, but I can't figure out how to add it to ikiwiki.in so that pm_filter doesn't strip it out.

Anyway, once the 'use lib' is added I get the following error:

t/basewiki_brokenlinks.....ok 1/3Can't locate object method "new" via package "HTML::Template" at blib/lib/IkiWiki.pm line 858.

After some digging I found that HTML::Template is being required after the new statement, again, easily fixed:

After some step through I figured out that the template directory was invalid, again easily fixed:

Other than ikiwiki.in, am I missing something here?

I think this is Debian bug #425891. I have sent there a patch that incorporates the original author's two diffs but has a more correct solution to the first problem described above. -- Thomas, 2007-06-26
