Hi List,


I'm configuring apache mod_perl to work with Catalyst according to the
cookbook, but this error showed up when I restarts apache.  It occurs
when my catalyst application tries to start up by calling


[error] Global $r object is not available. Set:

PerlOptions +GlobalRequest

in httpd.conf at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/CGI.pm line 361.

Compilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 3.


I have dug around internet, but there weren't much info about this
error.  I have added "PerlOptions" to my conf file, updated CGI.pm to
the latest version, but they didn't help.


My Apache version is 2.0.55, and modperl is 2.0.2.  Some post suspect
there's a bug for "PerlOption" in modperl.  So, I'm gonna update those
next, but hopping someone would know something about it.
