Confirmed working on my system as well!

Thanks for headsup.

I added the patch to this package. Now I can start apache with mod_perl and perl 5.22. Yay!

Please test it carefully and report upstream if there are any issues.

Thanks for your help!!

The description Bug #101962 link published patch Perl-5.22-compatibility-take-4.patch, which fixed the problem of falls.
Check it out, please?

mod_perl won't work with the latest version of perl. If you are replacing the 'perl<5.22' dependency with 'perl' then the package will build successfully, but it won't work when you try to run it (i.e. with Apache). The only way for it to work is to install perl 5.20 or lower, but it is no longer in the repositories. You will have to compile it from source yourself.

@ArthurBorsboom: Thanks a lot for your support! I was configuring BackupPC and by doing this I was needing to install mod_perl.

I found the 2 errors and I followed what you said and it works.

Just one more thing, when I add "LoadModule perl_module modules/" into my httpd.conf, the service does not run.

According to the bug thread, it looks like they have a fix which will be implemented in version 2.0.10 pretty soon. When that happens, will this package move back to the official repos or is it going to stay in the AUR?

Besides downgrading perl you have 2 more options:

- The best option is to avoid using mod_perl. mod_perl development is in stagnation nowdays.

- Contact upstream and ask to fix Perl 5.22 issues.

I downgraded my Perl version (and a few packages depending on v5.22) to work around this for now (so far no negative side effects):

cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
sudo pacman -U perl-5.20.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz perl-dbd-mysql-4.031-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz perl-dbi-1.633-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz perl-linux-pid-0.04-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz perl-xml-libxml-2.0121-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz perl-xml-parser-2.44-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Very annoying.

Straight from the mod_perl v2.0.9 announce mail (fourth message from the bottom at

"Note that Perl 5.22.x is currently not supported. This is logged as
CPAN RT#101962 and will hopefully be addressed in 2.0.10."
