Things that don’t make a difference:

using Perl 5.8.1

using Perl 5.x.x with multithread off

using Storable 2.02 - 2.07

using 8 byte pointers

export LANG=C

compiling perl-5.8.0-88 for non-multithreaded

now trying perl 5.8.1

That is working for me.
When my LANG=en_US… the Storable gives an error.( not always at the

Hello All,

Has anyone yet found a solution to the Storable issue under RedHat 9?

I have noted a few other packages on the web with this same
type of error
but no fixes yet.

Hi Vincent,

Had a lot of Problems with AxKit (something different) on Red Hat 9,
which finally showed that the Perl shipping with Red Hat 9 was corrupt.

So I wrote a small installation documentation which includes a clean
installation of Perl. Even though it is not in the documentation I have
HTML::Mason running fine on that system and so far no module
installation was impossible.

You can find the documentation at:

Maybe your problem can be solved if you just change LANG in
/etc/sysconfig/i18n and relogin before you recompile perl.

I haven’t had the time to test an installation of RT on that system,
but I am quite sure it could be easily done.

If that solves your problem please let me know, if not please let me
know, so that I can do a RT3 test installation on the test-system in

If that goes absolutely the wrong way I am sorry fpr wasting your time.
