in reply to How to obtain perl5/auto/IO/ with global symbols?


What do you get if you run  ldd -v on each machine? (par/par/native)

I think that error might really mean that some other library couldn't be found ( Assuming the PAR filters you're using arent mixing things up )

Global symbols?? What global symbols? :)
