Error installing ActivePerl 5.24 on CentOS6

Posted by cbbs70a on 2016-07-06 04:44

I was wondering if there is a way to install the new ActivePerl 5.24 on a CentOS6 server. I'm getting an error:

"perl/bin/perl: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by perl/bin/perl)".

Does this mean that unless I am running CentOS7, I can no longer use new versions of ActivePerl as they become available? I have dozens of mission critical customer servers running CentOS6 so its not possible for me to simply switch operating systems.

Depending on what you currently have, Business Edition Licenses would be an option for those servers. You should open a support ticket ( and we can go over your options in more detail.
