Can't install the latest Perl on Oracle Unbreakable Linux
[xxx ActivePerl-188.8.131.520-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?
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?
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.

Frequently encountered problems may have an FAQ available.
Our Engineering team want to use a perl script on our pre-production environment (Windows Server) that searches and replaces some values. This perl script is not included in the final product or distributed with any software or accessed by any 3rd party. Are we able to use the community edition, or does this require the purchase of a Business Edition license?
Hi - this doesn't seem right - I've selected Typical Install, clicked on the 'Install' button and the dialog freezes - surely I should get some kind of progress bar?
I have installed ActivePerl on Windows 2008 with MSI from exe on the wrong Directory C drive rather then D drive. Best way to resolve issue can I repair, modify or do I need to remove it? Then I would also need to delete directories created during installation of ActivePerl ? Thanks Doug
I have ActiveState Perl installed on a Windows machine.
Now, suppose I have scripts, including one called "SomeScript.pl", in this directory:
How do I configure Perl to automatically look in that directory for scripts when it is passed a script path?
For example, from the command line, I can run...:
But the following...:
Hi, I tried to install ActivePerl on Linux ( 64 bit ). I got the following error.
perl/bin/perl: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by perl/bin/perl)
Please let me know the solution.
