Esteemed Monks,

I am working through my first attempt to putting together a web server from scratch. After several days worth of problemsinstalling stuff and getting things to work at all I finally built Apache from source, same for mod_perl and MySQL 4.0.15a.

Now I am trying to install modules. When I try to install Date::Calc I get LOTS of these errors:

Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected non-continuation byte 0x61, imme +diately after start byte 0xed) at /root/.cpan/build/Date-Calc-5.3/blib/lib/Date/Calendar/ + line 2756. Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected non-continuation byte 0x61, imme +diately after start byte 0xed) at /root/.cpan/build/Date-Calc-5.3/blib/lib/Date/Calendar/ + line 2757. <p>
Okay, it seems like something to do with UTF-8 is not installed! The Perl is v5.8.0 installed fomr the RPM supplied with RedHat 8.0.

Do I need to recompile the Perl with something else turned on? Or is it a module thing I have missed somewhere?

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.
