Re: Perl/Apache install problems


Thanks for the help. One strange thing I just noticed is that some of the so-called missing dependencies seem to be on my system, only in different directories than Gnome RPM is looking for them.

When I did a find on perl and env, it showed the files were on my system at the following locations:


The implication to me is that the RPM is looking for files in the wrong location.

Results of your suggestions are below.

Type the following and see what comes up:
rpm -qa | grep perl


rpm -qa | grep libc

glibc-devel-2.1.2-11 libc-5.3.12-31 glibc-2.1.2-11 compat-glibc-5.2-

You should be able to find mod_perl on your Red Hat cds otherwise, you can download it from the ftp

There is a file "extra-SRPMS/perl-mod_perl-1.21-4.src.rpm" on the CPANdisk. Is this the one I should load.

Gnome RPM locked up on me several times during my attempts to load the CD, plus the screen saver does not work. I keep hoping Linux will be the Windows killer, but it doesn't seem ready for prime time based on the problems I keep having with Red Hat.
