"Various and sundry perl modules" and "setgid perl"

I’m attempting to install RT2.0 on RH 7.0.

In the “Required Packages” section of the readme, it lists “Various and
sundry perl modules”.

What does this mean?

Also, is there an easy way to verify that my perl supports setgid?

Thanks in advance!

Lots of stuff :wink: There’s a script in the source tree that checks for
nearly all the necessary modules. Just run it.

ls -l which suidperl

Does it have the suid bit set? My perms look like this:

-rws–x--x 3 root wheel 50920 Jun 26 09:03 /usr/bin/suidperl*
