Bugzilla checksetup.pl stops with segmentation fault

After upgrading an openSUSE machine, the Bugzilla installation no longer works. Each run of the checksetup.pl crashes with “segmentation fault”. After updating perl with cpan and some research the solution for the problem was very simple:

  1. Rename the lib folder in the Bugzilla directory
  2. Run ./install-modules –all
  3. Run ./checksetup.pl again

Hardlink, Symlink and Junctions

To create a softlink, which should work through a network share, a junction should be created with mklink:

[...]mklink
Creates a symbolic link.

MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target

        /D      Creates a directory symbolic link.  Default is a file
                symbolic link.
        /H      Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link.
        /J      Creates a Directory Junction.
        Link    specifies the new symbolic link name.
        Target  specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link
                refers to.
