in reply to Cannot create directory while compiling perl 5.16.1

Hi szabgab,

can you please provide the following information:

  1. Which distibution and version does this Linux box run?
  2. How did you invoke "sh Configure"? Any special configuration parameters?
  3. If you only do sh Configure -de -Dprefix=$HOME/apps/perl/bleadperl does it work properly?
  4. Is this Linux machine at a remote hosting? If so - which?

Hopefully I or others will be able to help you after getting this information.

    It tells me it is a "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)" but I suspect it might be CentOS.

    ./Configure -des -Dprefix=/a/it/perl5-15.1

    The /a is an NFS. My suspicion is that the usernames and ids have some issues. I run as user "abc" but the files I create have owner "def" and group "xyz". Also I noticed user "abc" has two entries in /etc/passwd

    The local IT team is working on fixing the userids and usernames, but I am not sure if this is the source of the problem,
