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,

LanX has to go/
[ambrus]: I hope we didn't mess up the spam filter rules again.
[ambrus]: Our spam filter rules disallow links to certain domains, and some suspicious pharses that have appeared in previous spam advertising cheap online whatevers.
[LanX]: some servers were lagging today, so I suppose the root cause
[LanX]: ambrus no recent patches
[Petroza]: no i haven't posted anything before. It was a more or less long question with a specific issue. I did post a title and the links i added where only part of the element i was searching within the code (so no purpose other than the question itself).
[1nickt]: Petroza can you go back in your browser to the preview screen, redact the links, and try to submit again?
[LanX]: copy and paste the text into your Petroza's scratchpad please
[Petroza]: yes I'll do that. instead of the url I'll write "link"
