with version 3.141592 I get

HOME=/home/me /usr/bin/perl -Iblib/lib   ikiwiki.out -libdir . -dumpsetup ikiwiki.setup
Failed to load plugin IkiWiki::Plugin::inline: Can't use global $_ in "my" at IkiWiki/Plugin/inline.pm line 198, near "my $_"
Compilation failed in require at (eval 19) line 2.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 19) line 2.

perl is 5.8.9

This is fixed in 3.1415926. --Joey

How can i upgrade my nearlyfreespeech installation of ikiwiki? To install it i have followed your instructions here.
But now if I want to upgrade it to a newer version?
Thanks for your incredible work!

You can move ~/ikiwiki out of the way and then re-download and install it ikiwiki. --Joey

Thanks a lot Joey. :-)


I installed version 3.20141016 as described, and it works mostly. However to get plugins/sparkline to work properly I had to add

set_include_path(get_include_path() . PATH_SEPARATOR . '/home/private/src/sparkline-php-0.2/lib');

to sparkline.pm around line 38. This is mostly likely because

  1. I didn't install sparkline into php's default path.
  2. I don't really know php.
  3. I don't have the time (right now) to sort out the proper way to do this.

I also haven't sorted out how to make ikiwiki/directive/format fully functional. I suspect I don't have everything installed on the host. -- james
