[EP-tech] Issues installing IRStats

Hello,

I've had a number of issues installing IRStats on a recent version
(3.3.9) of EPrints running on Perl v5.12.4 on my Ubuntu system. Was wondering
if I could get some help with the RegistryCooker problem - do I just need to
install a new version of ModPerl?

I've listed everything that failed during installation:

1 Logfile::EPrints 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Failed tests on installation via CPAN.
- Had to force install with following command:

  $ perl -MCPAN -e "CPAN::Shell->force(qw(install Logfile::EPrints));"


2 ./cgi/irstats.cgi 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Has outdated default paths for libraries (EPrints automatically installed to
  /usr/share/eprints3/ for me anyway). Was able to correct this through editing
  the lines mentioned in the readme, though.
- Fires a deprecated warning for any command:

  UNIVERSAL->import is deprecated and will be removed in a future perl at
  /usr/share/eprints3/perl_lib/IRStats/Params.pm line 4.

- `update_table` throws another error:
  
  Nothing in access to process
    at /usr/share/eprints3/perl_lib/IRStats/Update/Parser/Access.pm line 44.
     IRStats::Update::Parser::Access::update('IRStats::Update::Parser::Access=HASH(0xd324d1c)')
       called at /usr/share/eprints3/perl_lib/IRStats/CLI/update_table.pm line 75
     IRStats::CLI::update_table::execute('IRStats::CLI::update_table=HASH(0x9810050)')

     IRStats::CLI::handler() called at /usr/share/eprints3/perl_lib/IRStats.pm line 73
     IRStats::handler() called at ./cgi/irstats.cgi line 22


3 Irstats page 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Returns a blank page on trying to view
- Is returning a normal status code but empty response:

  GET /cgi/irstats.cgi HTTP 1.1

4 Apache Error Log 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Error about missing 'RegistryCooker':

  [Tue May 22 09:59:07 2012] #[error]
    #slurp_filename('/usr/share/eprints3/cgi/irstats.cgi') / opening: (2)
    No such file or directory at /usr/lib/perl5/ModPerl/RegistryCooker.pm line 541

- This seems to be part of ModPerl, but my version of ModPerl was
  automatically installed by the EPrints Debian package. I cannot find a
  RegistryCooker module on CPAN - does this mean I need to install an updated
  version of ModPerl?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Best wishes, Rob
