Re: Install Perl on Fedora

Hi, Fedora Users:

  I am just starting out to use Fedora and learned about installations with the yum function.
  I have installed Perl 5.10.0-26, and the message shows that it had been installed:

Updated: perl.i386 4:5.10.0-26.fc9 perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker.i386 0:6.36-26.fc9 perl-ExtUtils-ParseXS.i386 1:2.18-26.fc9 perl-Module-Pluggable.i386 1:3.60-26.fc9 perl-Pod-Escapes.i386 1:1.04-26.fc9 perl-Pod-Simple.i386 1:3.05-26.fc9 perl-Test-Harness.i386 0:2.64-26.fc9 perl-devel.i386 4:5.10.0-26.fc9 perl-libs.i386 4:5.10.0-26.fc9 perl-version.i386 3:0.74-26.fc9

However, when I tried to execute a basic hello script in Perl, it tells me
bash: ./total.pl: /usr/local/bin/perl: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

It is true that I don't see Perl in this directory, but is it necessary that I have to move my Perl installation?

No, just put a symlink in /usr/local/bin that points to the fedora perl at /usr/bin/perl

Thanks in advance.
