in reply to perl execution on Mandriva2006

if you look at the #! line at the top of your perl script this will show you where the OS will go looking for the executable to run that script. /usr/bin/perl is the usual location in Mandriva. If you have a lot of scripts with another location, say /bin/perl you could make a link from there to your script or you can feed your scripts through a onle liner to change it, something like this would do all the ones in your current dir.

perl -pe 's|#!/bin/perl|#!/usr/bin/perl|' *.pl

On a seperate note does anyone know why Mandriva ship a perl without multithreading compiled in ? If I try perl -Mthreads -e1 I get an error informing me it is not compiled for multithread. Is there any sane reason for Mandriva to do this ?

[Corion]: erix: But that makes for fun bug hunting. "What version of Chrome are you running?" "v62". "I also run v62 and it works on my machine". :-(
[Corion]: marto: Great, looking forward to the PR!
LanX wonders, do we have a rule against systematic down voting?
[erix]: we frown :)
[marto]: Does the command line arg --product-version@ help?
[LanX]: xD
[erix]: 'systematic' is going to be hard to define I think
[marto]: Err no @
