Hi Dan

I'm trying to reproduce on a fresh RedHat7.2 installation, but can't get these errors. I did install the requirements for Catmandu:

 $ yum group install "Development Tools" -y
 $ yum install openssl-devel tcp_wrappers-devel expat expat-devel libxml2 libxml2-devel libxslt libxslt-devel -y

and then make testing on HTTP::OAI gives me a clean install for :

perl 5.16.3 (using system installed perl)
perl 5.18.2 , 5.24.0 (using plenv)

Hi Dan

I had no problem installing all on CentOS7. But I'll try to create a RedHat box and let you know.

Note: This is an issue with a Catmandu dependency, not Catmandu itself,
but I still post here to discuss the issue in case any of you have
experience with it.

On RedHat 7, `cpanm Catmandu::Importer::OAI` fails to install HTTP::OAI

http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/T/TI/TIMBRODY/HTTP-OAI-4.03.tar.gz ... OK
Configuring HTTP-OAI-4.03 ... OK
Building and testing HTTP-OAI-4.03 ... FAIL
! Installing HTTP::OAI failed. See
/path/to/.cpanm/work/1480606853.9733/build.log for details. Retry with
--force to force install it.
! Installing the dependencies failed: Module 'HTTP::OAI' is not installed
! Bailing out the installation for Catmandu-OAI-0.02.

The information in the build.log is the same as reported here over a
year ago:


but the issue doesn't seem to have gained any attention, and I'm
probably not familar enough with Perl to successfully debug it. Have any
of you run into it?

Since Centos 7 is listed on
https://github.com/LibreCat/Catmandu/wiki/Installation#centos-7 , it
seems like someone has been able to install it there.

On a box with Ubuntu the install went fine, but unfortunately I'm forced
to use RedHat at work. The Docker image might save me.
