I've been gitting into git (clever, I know) lately, so I was trying to migrate my git commits for a project back into an existing subversion repository - another post coming on that later.
When trying to run git-svn to import my subversion repository into git I got the following error, followed by a Perl stack trace:
Can't locate Term/ReadKey.pm
A couple of installs got this working, read on...
To install Term::ReadKey, fire up a terminal and type (you may need to sudo):
$> perl -MCPAN -e shell cpan> install Term::ReadKey
After a bunch of output I got the error message:
Writing Makefile for Term::ReadKey -- NOT OK Running make test Can't test without successful make Running make install make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
I tried to see what was wrong with the Makefile by trying to run make in the TermKey folder:
~/.cpan/build/TermReadKey-2.30 $> make -bash: make: command not found
Interesting, didn't realize OS X came preinstalled with things like perl but not make.
Getting make on OS X
I'm sure there's an easier way to just get make on OS X, but I'm still new to my mac, so I wanted to install something supported by Apple instead of getting into stuff like ports. After searching around on the Developer center I found that XCode includes make.
After signing up for a free developer account and installing XCode, I now had make.
Installing Term::ReadKey - round 2
Let's try this again...
$> perl -MCPAN -e shell cpan> install Term::ReadKey CPAN: Storable loaded ok Going to read /Users/greg/.cpan/Metadata Database was generated on Wed, 10 Dec 2008 11:26:54 GMT Term::ReadKey is up to date.
Hurray! Now git-svn is working on OS X.
