Description Nemeth, Laszlo 1999-02-14 08:02:24 UTC
After upgrading perl to the errata version (perl-5.004m7-1),
mod_perl stops working. Fix - rebuild mod_perl.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-04-01 22:44:59 UTC
I installed a fresh install of 5.2. Updated the from perl-5.004m4-1
to  perl-5.004m7-1 available from updates.redhat.com. I was unable to
get this to fail when using mod_perl and running a sample cgi script.

Comment 2 Ian Macdonald 1999-04-25 17:12:59 UTC
This definitely is a problem for any CGI script that does a 'use CGI'.

Trying to run such a script under mod_perl when the latest Perl
package has been installed from the errata (perl-5.004m7-1) results in
this kind of error in /var/log/httpd/error_log:

[Sun Apr 25 18:01:27 1999] [error] Can't locate overload.pm in @INC

overload.pm is located in /usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/5.00405 in the new
Perl package.
