Subject: Add FAQ about RH 9's brokenness.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 674b
Redhat shipped a very broken Perl with 9.0 up until, and including, Enterprise 3. It likes to generate corrupt Makefiles. MakeMaker should provide a FAQ about this so I don't have to keep answering it. Here's the bug report. It effects their perl-5.8.0-88 rpm. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=87682 A work around is to set LANG to something not Unicode such as C or en. Here is the updated Perl. https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2004-391.html Here is the even more updated Perl. https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-105.html Here is a Perl shipped by Redhat which is less than 3 years old. https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-103.html
