Re: Cannot create directory while compiling perl 5.16.1
in thread Cannot create directory while compiling perl 5.16.1
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,
