in reply to Perl 5.8.0...
in thread Installing Perl on the Sharp Zaurus PDA

Okay. Setup:

One 5500SL, flashed w/OpenZaurus
One 128 MB SD
One Linux box that has NFS installed, is connected to said Zaurus, and configured to talk to it.

Create and export a directory to mount.
SSH into your Zaurus and mount it. I use /mnt/net.

Then: ipkg -d sd -t /mnt/net/tmp install Perl_5.8.0_arm.ipk

The "-t" flag specifies a temporary directory. This means /tmp... errr... /var/tmp doesn't get touched. ...and it doesn't install right. Okay, let's see what this thing is.... ooooo, it's a gzipped tarball (unlike ar archives) and we can pull the files out of the "data.tar.gz" that it has. Inside, there's a ./perl/perl-5.8.0/(bin|lib) set. Eazy. Copy and symlink.
