( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've got a box with RedHat 6.2's base install. The box isn't live, and has nothing critical on it yet. I'd like to find the best way to replace the 5.005_03 install that's on it with 5.6.

My previous experience moving to 5.6 using CPAN ended up forking my directory structure, taking up space and giving me two copies of all the core modules & libraries. I'd like to avoid that this time around.

What's the cleanest way to get to 5.6? Uninstall the old version with RPM and get a new source from and build it by hand?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
