perl issue in CentOS Linux release 7.8.2003 (Core)

Post by wariyalvikas54 » 2020/09/16 09:53:05

Hello Team

Facing below perl issue while running the fusioninventory-agent command for GLPI.

[root@del2lmsokbase ~]# fusioninventory-agent
/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib64/perl5/auto/Storable/Storable.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Istack_sp_ptr

[root@del2lmsokbase ~]# rpm -qa | egrep -i 'dbi'
perl-DBIx-Simple-1.35-7.el7.noarch
libdbi-0.8.4-6.el7.x86_64
perl-DBI-1.627-4.el7.x86_64
[root@del2lmsokbase ~]# perl -v

This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi
(with 40 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

Let me know if any further logs are required.

Your problem appears to be self-inflicted since nothing supplied by CentOS installs under /usr/local at all. That means that whatever it is that is complaining is something that you have built and installed there.

--> We have installed the GLPI agent in this server for monitoring purpose . So you mean to say we should uninstall the GLPI agent and reinstall in a different path.

/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib64/perl5/auto/Storable/Storable.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Istack_sp_ptr

--> Not sure what the error says about Storable.so

Appreciate your quick help on this but how can we resolve this error.

I'm suspecting you didn't install this from a package. Checking with yum provides '*/Storable.so' shows me that the file you have under /usr/local is already supplied by a CentOS package:

Code: Select all

perl-Storable-2.45-3.el7.x86_64 : Persistence for Perl data structures
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/auto/Storable/Storable.so
Also, there is a package in EPEL that seems to be what you tried to install from source:

glpi.noarch 0.90.5-2.el7 epel

Thanks for your suggestions.

We were able to fix the issue by renaming the perl mentioned in the /usr/local/lib64 directory.

[root@ser~]# fusioninventory-agent
/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib64/perl5/auto/Storable/Storable.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Istack_sp_ptr

[root@ser~]# ll /usr/local/lib64/
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Oct 9 2015 perl5_bkp

The agent ran fine then.

Thanks a lot for your inputs.
