in reply to perl depends on perl-base (= 5.8.8-7etch6) ...

This isn't really a Perl question, rather a Knoppix (or, by extension, Debian) problem, so you may get better help at the appropriate forums. Also, installing Debian packages into a Knoppix distribution is not really recommended, it may break all sorts of things in strange and funky ways. So maybe it would be better to reinstall the perl package that came on the Knoppix disk which you used to installed your system (if your current perl is indeed broken). Lastly, really, installing packages by hand is not usually a good idea, configure apt-get correctly and use that, it'll solve all the dependency issues for you.

All that being said, if you really want to go ahead and install this particular package, you should also download the perl-modules and perl-base packages from the same location and install them at the same time (you'll possibly have to use --force-depends for that). This may introduce additional dependency problems as well as previously mentioned funkyness, so don't say I didn't warn you :-)

All dogma is stupid.

    thank you and for the record this is what I did/you should do if you have same/similar problem:

    1) first download all these packages from your debian base in my case it was etch, so I got the from:

    using the closest repositories

    2) root@Knoppix:/media/hdb2/inst/sw/OO/source/ooxpkgs# ls -l total 6704 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 87062 Oct 5 2005 libarchive-zip-perl_1.16-1 +_all.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 56168 Nov 30 2006 libcompress-zlib-perl_1.42 +-2_i386.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 762766 Dec 21 2008 perl-base_5.8.8-7etch6_i38 +6.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2328214 Dec 21 2008 perl-modules_5.8.8-7etch6_ +all.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3599182 Dec 21 2008 perl_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb root@Knoppix:/media/hdb2/inst/sw/OO/source/ooxpkgs# md5sum *.deb f893020289fe0c774fab3db2cbf62edd libarchive-zip-perl_1.16-1_all.deb 3fc7e3138b823785078535d7982d988f +b f667327e7cd4044ee6fb3c900b75a181 perl-base_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb 6d995effacda8ecc2a935dc4527ed342 perl-modules_5.8.8-7etch6_all.deb 6c141bd9447670a86b0691adafb51596 perl_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb

    3) then I installed them using dpkg

    root@Knoppix:~# dpkg -i perl-base_5.8.8-7etch6_i386.deb (Reading database ... 110893 files and directories currently installed +.)

    and the compilation went on!
