./perl/bin/perl: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./perl/bin/perl)

Can't install the latest Perl on Oracle Unbreakable Linux

cd ActivePerl-5.20.1.2000-x86_64-linux-glibc-2.15-298557
[xxx ActivePerl-5.20.1.2000-x86_64-linux-glibc-2.15-298557]$ ./perl/bin/perl
./perl/bin/perl: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./perl/bin/perl)

At the moment have installed libc 2.12 and yum update tells me that it is the latest version available.

Can't find libc 2.14 in the repos. Could somebody tell where to get it?

Upgrading while keeping all your settings/modules intact

I discovered that my current AS perl, 5.12, is no longer ppm'able [without a business license] so I'm upgrading to 5.16. I'm worried about how that 'upgrade' should/will go. right now perl is installed in c:\perl64. Can I just install the new 5.16 in the same directory and will it basically leave my installed modules and other such along [perhaps needing a big update via ppm, but still there]? Or will I run into problems?

"Perl Command Line Interpreter has stopped working" when running PPM.

Can't get the PPM GUI to run. This is on Win 7 64-bit. Tried reinstalling 5.16.2 64-bit, with the same result. PPM command line seems to work. Just the GUI won't run. Tried 5.16.2 x86 and this launches the GUI fine.

The following is in the event log:
Faulting application name: perl.exe, version: 5.16.2.1602, time stamp: 0x50d17d90
Faulting module name: ole32.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7c92c
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000000000036b3b
Faulting process id: 0x%9
Faulting application start time: 0x%10
Faulting application path: %11

Installing active perl in lubuntu: Paths? Man?

i just installed active perl, and it went without a hitch, except... i have no idea how to set the PATH and MAN variables as suggested in the documentation or the prompt after installation. it doesnt go into much detail and assumes the user knows what to do. well i dont know what to do...

Unable to Install

I'm utilizing Active Perl and the Perl Package Manager for an undertaking for a idioms graduate understudy. I am utilizing ActivePerk 5.16.2 Build 1602. I'm on Windows 7.

I'm attempting to introduce 2 bundles, yet the "Imprint for Install" catch is dark ed out and I can't click (comparably, in the event that I hunt down the bundle name and right snap it, I see the alternative to Install it yet it is likewise dim ed out). The bundles I might want to introduce are for 2.30 and 1.13

Each time I stack PPM, I get this window:

Komodo IDE @INC Does not point to installed Perl Modules on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I have installed Perlbrew and cpanm on my Mac OS X since El Capitan locks down the native perl installation.

When I "use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel;", I get an edit error "Can't locate Spreadsheet/ParseExcel in @INC (you may need to install the Spreadsheet::ParseExcel module) ...

I have installed Spreadsheet::ParseExcel using cpanm. I have modified the Komodo "File Properties and Settings" -> Additional Perl Interperter so the directory is there, but I still get the error even though the directory is in the path. What could I be doing wrong?

PPM Error

Hi together,

i really need help with this: I installed perl and now i want to install a couple of modules with PPM. But if i try installing modules i get this error:

"ppm install MinGW" (one command im using for example)

"ppm install failed: DBD::SQLite::db selectrow_array failed: file is encrypted or is not in a database"

Im searching for solutions for this problems since hours but i found nothing yet. Even if i type only PPM in the command shell it appears the same error.

Could someone help me with that problem? I would appreciate this a lot.

Regards, Leo

Perl 5.22.1 install seems to not install DBD::Oracle (Oracle.pm missing)

Recently installed ActivePerl-5.22.1.2201-MSWin32-x86-64int-299574.msi

PPM shows DBD::Oracle installed to perl area as version 1.74, which is latest available, but I get errors when running my former programs that:
>>Can't locate DBD/Oracle.pm in @INC (you may need to install the DBD::Oracle module) (@INC
>>contains: ... C:/Perl/site/lib C:/Perl/lib .) at \\vie ...

There are many other DBD packages under C:\Perl\lib\DBD, but no Oracle.pm

The workaround is to use PPM to reinstall DBD::Oracle, which will put a copy in
C:\Perl\site\lib\DBD.
