Re^2: Obtaining perl-5.6.2 for modern Ubuntuby syphilis (Bishop)
|on Mar 20, 2020 at 11:25 UTC||Need Help??|
I used perlbrew and it installed pretty easily
Ok ... so how do I install "perlbrew" on Ubuntu, and then coerce it into building perl-5.6.2 for me ? (Baby steps please.)
I do have the 5.6.2 source tarball installed locally, and if perlbrew can build 5.6.2 on Ubuntu-18.x then I figure there's a good chance it can do the same on my Ubuntu-20.04.
I just tried building 5.6.2 on Debian wheezy (which must be years old by now) and struck the same issue. And I tried 5.6.1 as well ... but it's no different.
Don't we all just love people who want their stuff to build on ancient garbage that doesn't even build out of the box any more ?
For those of you struggling to come up with the correct answer to that question, it's a definite "yes!!".
(As in "yes ... we don't" ;-)
