Summary0000833: Parse::RecDescent 1.962 regression
DescriptionLatest version of Parse::RecDescent doesn't work with packetfence..

Error message is: Can't coerce GLOB to string in or at /usr/local/pf/bin/pfcmd line 1794.

It turns out that a newer Parse::RecDescent generate a that causes problems when pfcmd is called form the admin interface. Also on startup you can see the coerce glob error. [^]

Known buggy:

Known to work:

- upgrade lab to 1.962
- run packetfence, check for error
- regenerate pfcmd_grammar
- re-run packetfence, did that fix the error?
- if not, find root cause and report upstream if needed
TagsNo tags attached.

I was unable to reproduce so I removed the pinned version.

I got hit by this again after all.

It was reproducible when bin/pfcmd was called from the web in cgi-bin (as user pf).

ex: /usr/local/pf/bin/pfcmd 'manage register aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff "test" pid="1",user_agent="Mozilla 5.0 Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv: Gecko 20100401 Firefox 3.6.3",vlan="1"'

A really nasty bitch to find, not so much to fix. Upstream behavior did change but I don't really get what's up with "Can't coerce GLOB to string" so I tried using the command variable and calling the method using &{$..} and it works so it's good enough for me.
