in reply to Upgrade perl

I've tried this for SuSE 7.3 without success. Replacing distribution version of perl (5.6.1) with 5.8.0 broke some system services depending on it (eg. cups). So I switched back to 5.6.1 for system and install 5.8.0 to /opt/perl-5.8.0.

    You can probably use 5.8.0, you just have to add the path to Suse's modules (typically in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1/) when you compile Perl.

      Thanks, I tried once to compile without setting the path to modules. I become trouble with apache. My Cgi's did not work. "can not find module in @INC" ... At the End I reinstall perl 5.6.1 as rpm ... Murcia
