Perl installation error

Posted by chaitu1124 on 2016-08-29 13:34

Hi, I tried to install ActivePerl on Linux ( 64 bit ). I got the following error.

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

Please let me know the solution.

The reason for this error is the GLIBC version in your OS is too old.

This can happen if you're using a conservative distro like RHEL or CentOS. Conservative distros often stay behind the curve. It turns out that Red Hat says they don't update GLIBC in their kernel:

What you need to do is find an RHEL or CentOS that uses 2.14 or higher for GLIBC, or use something that uses a more later release (ie, Ubuntu).
