Need help on new disk (Seagate ST51080N) to Solaris 2.4. Thanks.

Hi :  

       Need SUN/unix guru's suggestion and help.

       Just try to add a 1G drive (Seagate's Medalist 1080sl, aka ST51080N)
to a Solaris 2.4 system.  Before I attach to the back of the SCSI port, I
noticed that the SCSI port is not terminated.  After I attached the drive
to the SCSI port and try to restart, I got the following messages (messages
after ======).  Is this due to SCSI termination ?  I opened the case and
could not find any SCSI terminator resistor pack or terminator.  Could any
one help me ???  Thanks a lot.

       Also, when I use SCSI-probe command, I got :

               SCSI unexpected phase = 0
               Target 4
               Stack  underflow

1. Need help on making perl 5.002 on solaris 2.4 Thanks !!!

Hi :  

       Need Perl/Soalaris guru's suggestion and help.

       Just try to make Perl5.002 on a Sparcstation 5 running Solaris 2.4
but failed.  It failed and get the message about could not find certain
file :

        (You get this message, because MakeMaker could not find

Then I copy this file to that directory and get another message of :

        Warning: PERL_LIB (/opt/perl/lib) seems not to be a perl
                    library directory
        ( not found) at ../../lib/ExtUtils/ line 601,
                    <DATA> chunk 811.
        Could not open '' (attribute VERSION_FROM):
                    No such file or directory at ../../lib/ExtUtils/
                    line 609, <DATA> chunk 811.

I check the file and found out it had problem with version and
previous version (which we do not have).  I wonder if :

       1. Is this error due to compiler we used (from SUN's, the path is
          /usr/ucb/cc) ?

       2. Is there any copy of perl that is ready for solaris 2.x ? where
          can I get it ?

       3. Any suggestion is welcome.  

Thanks a lot for your help.  Have a nice day.
