Well, this is irritating.

I've got, as I've mentioned, an RH 9 box as a firewall router. I just tried to
install CPAN, and it croaks. perl 5.8.1 is installed, as is perl-core. But the
install fails, complaining it can't find header files in
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/

So, why aren't they there, and what do I need to install to get them there? I
don't really think I should be doing things like
  cp /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/perl.h \
     /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/

        mark

perl.h is part of the perl package.  You can easily check with 'rpm
-qil perl |grep perl.h'.
So it sounds like your install failed.  What does 'rpm -V perl' return?

Better than that - I got perl-5.8.1-0.RC4.3.3.92mdk.i586.rpm and perl-base (etc).rpm, and neither has the header files.

Back to finding an actual release, instead of a half-a**ed one.
