Perl installation 5.8.7

Hi,

I just installed perl 5.8.7. Also,

]# /usr/bin/perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.7 built for i686-linux

but when i do a ]# make testdeps
/usr/bin/perl ./sbin/rt-test-dependencies --verbose --with-mysql
perl:
5.8.3…found
for RT 3.4.4 I gget perl’s version as 5.8.3 and not as 5.8.7. I think I must do some ln… but I’m not very sure.

Can you please help me? Thanks in advance.

Kin regards,
Abilash Praveen M

5.8.3 is hardcoded in rt-test-dependencies.
The correct output should be “>=5.8.3…found”.

To get the perl binary, RT is using, do ‘grep ^PERL Makefile’
(usually /usr/bin/perl).

Try:

perl -v

Just for grins, mind you.

Then, I’d try:

which perl

To not to be confused, I re-installed perl 5.8.7… but this time it is
here…

which perl

/usr/local/bin/perl

I think I must move it to /usr/bin/perl? How do I do that?

I think once this is done, everything will be in place.

thanks again,
