Install Error Message / Linux

Posted by grumpy13 on 2014-01-25 04:57

os / debian - mint - mate,

very interesting error message;

I put into the terminal;

localhost gary # /home/gary/Downloads/ActivePerl-

(perl install error,)

env: perl/bin/perl: No such file or directory

Now, it looks to me as though Linux is 'looking' for perl/bin/perl as a place to install.
How ever, this resembles a win32 perl header to me, minus the #!. I'm confused.
If linux wants a perl/bin/perl at the root I have no problem giving it. I thought perl would load into /opt/ActivePerl-5.16.3~~~~. Did I miss something ??
Thanks for the assist guys, please respond to;

Errors most often mean that the installer payload has been corrupted. The Linux Archive Manager will corrupt the tarball. This can be avoided if you save the tarball to a local directory and use gtar instead.

Another source of problems happens only on a 64-bit Linux. Some distros save space, and do not install the 32-bit compatibility libraries by default. If you want to run a 32 bit Perl on a 64-bit Linux, the compatibility libraries will need to be there.
