    Just in case oslevel -s Will tell you

      tollyban,

      Just in case the AIX is 5.2.0.0 or earlier, '-s' is not supported yet, just 'oslevel' will give you the AIX level.

      However, IMHO the more important question is what C compiler are you using? For CPAN installs I have used 'GCC version 4.2.4' with great success. YMMV. I don't know if CPAN authors verify that IBM's 'xlc' compiler will work with their package!

      Good Luck!

        Actually that is a fair point. I used GCC 4.2.3 for ours. Won't post my thoughts if they are still using AIX 5.2 though!! ;o)

[marto]: yep :)
[Discipulus]: being her marto, can you explain what "Par for the course I'm afraid." means?
Discipulus here..
[marto]: "what is normal or expected in any given circumstances."
[marto]: better: "If a type of behaviour, event, or situation is par for the course, it is not good but it is normal or as you would expect"
[Discipulus]: thanks i was unable to decide where to split the sentece
[marto]: FWIW search.cpan rarely has issues, see http://noc.perl. org for a route to report problems
[oakbox]: thanks, marto.
[marto]: there was a period where search.cpan had some frequent outages for (IIRC) a couple of weeks. I've not had any problems since, until today.
[marto]: this was about 16 months ago maybe. the noc team are, in my experience, very responsive to reports of issues, so please raise the issue after checking known problems/outages
