I posted this a while ago, someone answered but the
messages had gone stale on my news server so I didn't
get to see it and I'm stil curious.. I'd appreciate if you
could copy my email if you know the answer...
I was trying to build the latest version of perl on
my redhat i386 7.0 system. I had applied all the latest
security updates to it and when I tried to configure perl,
it said it couldn't fine libposix and that I had a big problem
I searched around for it and found it under
copied it into /usr/lib
and then the perl build was happy... but I am unclear what
this dir tree is for??? When I applied the RedHat security
updates, it did update my glibc to 2.2-12... I am no expert about how
rpm really works, so I'm not sure if this is left over from the
old version of glibc or what, but then why isn't libposix with the
new version? I though posix was kinda central to the whole thing...
Any insight into this would be appreciated...
