#4926 closed patch (duplicate) always prints an error if Net::UPnP::ControlPoint is not installed.

Some of my mythtv-status users have asked about an error message that is always printed from which says:

Net::UPnP::ControlPoint? is not installed!

Looking at the code this is always printed if Net::UPnP is not installed, even if UPnP isn't needed to be used. Then if does try and fall back to UPnP but the module isn't present *another* warning is printed.

So I think this first warning isn't required. The attached patch removes it.

If this could go on 0.21-fixes that would be excllent. As it affects anyone using the Perl bindings included with 0.21 that don't have this often unrequired module installed.

This is fixed properly by #4754. #4754 can be applied to both 0.21-fixes and trunk.

Actually, that patch fixes another problem. The print STDERR is still not required (which is what my patch removes).

its not just the Net::UPnP::ControlPoint? that isnt installed. but ALSO Net::UPnP::QueryResponse?

use "cpan" in a terminal and follow its prompts... then when its done with the configuration type this in the cpan prompt "install Perl Net::UPnP::ControlPoint?" and dont forget "cpan> install Net::UPnP::QueryResponse?"

then you should be able to run or anything else giving the above error. example syntax for is: /usr/share/mythtv/contrib/ --link /mnt/storage/RaidShare/Movies\ and\ Video/MYTHTVshows/ --format %T/%T%-%S

While that stops the message appearing for you, I still think the message doesn't need to displayed unless UPnP actually fails because the module isn't present.

As it is, I've also been told that will print out a message on STDERR if it actually wants to use UPnP to find the backend. This is a pain for people trying to use the module as well.

I can confirm that the install of Net::UPnP::QueryResponse fixes the Net::UPnP::ControlPoint message

comment:8 Changed 12 years ago by andrew@…

Excellent. But apply my patch will also fix the problem since UPnP isn't required for this module to work.
