Where's Perl?

Post by jwha » Sat, 30 Nov 2002 04:35:08



I'm looking to find out what pkg cd Perl 5.8 is on? I'm using an i386
sys. I just don't want to have to download 3 different cd's.

Thanks,

jwhal

PERL is availbale in pkgsrc/lang/perl*

use:

ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-current/tar_files/pkgsrc.tar.gz

or fetch binaries at:

ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/packages/1.6/i386/lang/perl-5.8.0.tgz

(assuming 1.6/i386)

1. Using Sunfreeware's perl in place of Sun's perl

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

In a SolarisIA 8 environment, the perl that Sun distributes displays
the following errors when I invoke inn's mailpost


00503/i86pc-solaris /usr/perl5/5.00503 /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i86pc-solaris
/usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005 .) at /usr/perl5/5.00503/Sys/Syslog.pm line 117.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/news/bin/mailpost line 15.

Apparently perl displays this error because Sun used its proprietary
C compiler to create its perl distribution, but my host uses gcc.

It also seems that a pkgrm SUNWpl5? fails because the Solaris 8
kernel now depends upon perl.

How the heck can I install Sunfreeware's perl, compiled with gcc,
if Sun's perl refuses to remove itself?

I changed cc to gcc in /usr/perl5/5.00503/i86pc-solaris/Config.pm,
but the error still occurs.

TIA.
