Please share the link details where I can download the community edition of Active Perl for Solaris 19 (X86).

Not able to install Net::SSLeay perl module on Solaris x86 OS

On a Solaris x86 machine, we have Active perl 5.12 version installed.
We wanted to support SSL communication from Perl application.

When i tried to communicate to a HTTPS url i get the following error.
500 Can't locate object method "new" via package "LWP::Protocol::https::Socket"

On debugging, realized that we don't have the needed Net-SSLeay module installed. Hope that is causing this error.

When we tried to install Net-SSLeay using ppm, we get the following error.

We have Perl Business Edition license. I hope ppm should allow us to install the needed modules.

Tcl_CreateChannelHandler mask value on windows & Solaris

I have used Tcl_CreateChannelHandler to listen to the TCP socket handling.
Here the mask value returned is always 2 even after the TCP connection is closed by the other end on the solaris machine. But on a windows machine the mask value returned is 6 when the connection is closed. While creating the channel the option used is TCL_READABLE . Any idea how to know that the channel is closed without trying to read the channel on Solaris ?

Need to understand the matching between TCLpro 1.5 and ActiveTCL


I am currently looking to understand how TCLpro 1.x (1.4 and above) matches the ActiveTCL 8.x versions for Solaris x86.

From the readme files, it appears that

"TclPro 1.4 bundles Tcl/Tk 8.3.2 and compatible versions of TclX, [incr Tcl], and (for Unix platforms only) Expect. You can download a free copy of TclPro 1.4 for:
• Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0 (Intel), 2000
• Solaris 2.5, 2.6, 7 (SPARC)
• HP-UX 10.20
• Linux (Intel, Red Hat 5.0+, SuSE 6.0+)
• SGI IRIX 6.3+"

not able to install ActiveTcl

while trying to install getting this error :

# sh ./payload/bin/tclsh8.5: cannot execute

ActivePython installation error on Solaris 10

I'm installing ActivePython in my home directory on a Solaris 10 machine. I used gunzip to unzip and gtar to untar the tar.gz in my home directory. When running I get an error.

[user@server:~] $ cd ActivePython-
[user@server:~/ActivePython-] $ ./
./ ./INSTALLDIR/bin/python: cannot execute
[user@server:~/ActivePython-] $

This is what is in the server's opt directory - would python already be installed here?

Solaris 10 post update using wrong perl

A long departed dev setup a Sol 10 box on which they installed ActivePerl and several modules. I had an OS corruption problem after a recent patch and had to upgrade with the latest update 5 which cured my problem.

However, the update obviously wiped out some config bits and now none of my perl scripts run unless I use the entire activeperl path.

I added activeperl to the path in /etc/profile and restarted. echo $PATH shows activeperl prior to /usr/bin but 'whereis perl' still shows /usr/bin/perl.

ssh to the box and 'su - root' results in activeperl as default for that session.

Problems with tls under solaris10/intel

My script works fine under windows and linux.
But under solaris 10 x86 (intel!) there is only trouble.

Missing module "logging" on Solaris install

I'm trying to install ActivePython on Solaris X86. I downloaded the the installer to a Windows machine, expanded it and FTPd the resulting directory to the Solaris box. I then tried to run, and got Import Error: No module named logging at line 33 in ./_install/py

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Does the directory ActivePython- (which was expanded from the .tar.gz file I downloaded) have to be put in a specific location on the Unix box?

I'm an absolute beginner with Unix, so this is probably something very simple...

Thanks for your help.


Installing ActivePerl 5.8 on Intel Solaris 9

I apologise for the tediousness of this question - I have tried
googling and the ActivePerl website with no luck:

I have previously installed ActivePerl 5.6 on a handful of Sparc
Solaris 9 boxes as follows:

pkgadd -a ActivePerl- -d
ActivePerl- -r
ActivePerl- ASperl

Where the ActivePerl- contained:
