Re: Re: Starting again
in thread Starting again installing Perl
Well, having force-removed perl, you're probably in a very general bind in that you have a whole bunch of packages that expect perl to be there when it isn't. Is your system irremediably broken? Not necessarily. You can probably reinstall RH's perl, and install your own somewhere else., say, in /usr/local/. That's going to be a chore, because there's a lot of questions you need to know the answer to that you probably won't. A starting point is to figure out what is "broken" vis a vis RH perl and scoop. I believe that scoop runs under mod_perl, and there might be issues with the prerelease of mod_perl RH has shipped since version 8. So it may not be perl as such that needs to be recompiled, only mod_perl (and apache, since RH's apache is v.2.0, and mod_perl 1.x won't run with that). Once you get that part figured out, come back and ask again as a reply here (or to your original message) and I'll do what I can to help you out -- although keep in mind I had better see evidence of a fishing pole (aka research) as I'm willing to help, but not willing to do the work for you =)
If not P, what? Q maybe?
