Well, I had the same problem: the test failed

> [....] test.pl: Can't call method "header" on an undefined value at
gnatsweb.pl line 2117, <SOCK> line 1.
> connect...........................................FAIL

I continued the installation nevertheless: I can query the database via
gnatsweb and look at pr's but editing pr's doesn't work.
I get change notification messages per email, but the pr's never change in
the database. I suspected unix access rights but they look OK.
Any ideas?

The main reason that I'm trying gnatsweb is its supposed ability to include
file attachments, although from the documentation I got the feeleing, that
attachments show up in text format in notifications etc.

Will gnats4 have native support for attachments (so that bug reports have
mime format)?#

Hi!

I've had this problem before.   I was missing a colon in one of the lines
in the 'Categories' file.

Look into your gnats-db.conf file and make sure that it is correct.
Then look into the configuration files and verify that they are correct
too. Try to restore those files to their defaults and
see if that solves your problem. It worked for me.
