Dear Prosody Developers,

Our installation of Prosody-0.9.8 is not starting. We compiled it from source in the following environment. When we type prosodyctl start, it gives the error. What are we missing?

·Any dependencies?

·Or ordering of modules in events.lua?


/usr/local/lua-5.3.0/bin/lua: /usr/local/lib/prosody-0.9.8/prosody/util/events.lua:16: attempt to call a nil value (global 'module')

stack traceback:
