Re: [GMOD-devel] Trouble with Chado installation

Scott Cain
Hi Haritha,

I'm cc'ing the schema mailing list, since that's where we discuss Chado issues.  I haven't installed DBIx::DBStag on the command line/via cpan in a really long time.  Since you're using Ubuntu, I'd suggest that you use apt-get:

  sudo apt-get install libdbix-dbstag-perl

Virtually all (or actually all, I don't remember) prerequisites can be installed with apt-get on Debian and Ubuntu systems.  There is also a Debian package for Chado, but as I recall, it's pretty flawed, so I'd suggest not using it.

Also, if you plan on using Tripal at all, I'd suggest installing Chado with Tripal anyway, as it's easier.

I am working on a genome project for BTI. I am trying to install Chado on my Ubuntu machine on postgres. I followed all the steps of the GMOD installation verbatim. I got the GMOD bundle installed. I am running into trouble with the DBIs::DBStag (DBIx::DBSchema is installed). When I reach the step “make” after the, I get repeated error at the same line in the script at:


t/cvterm.t ...... Cannot quote a reference at /home/hv66/Downloads/DBIx-DBStag-0.10/blib/lib/DBIx/ line 3736.

t/cvterm.t ...... Dubious, test returned 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)


I am not sure what I am missing. When I checked for the bundle installs, all others are up to date.


The result is FAIL, but I am pretty sure d it yesterday night, it showed me a PASS. I might be severely mistaken.


Please help me out,
