I'm trying to install Rhodecode into a Solaris 10 server, but when the installer is trying to install bcrypt it fails with the following error:

You'd be safe using the perl solution since you are using a library instead of writing the code that uses this type.

  • I solved using the B-K approach, but your link lead me to the solution. Thanks a lot.
