Description david.hagood 2007-10-31 20:46:05 UTC
Description of problem:
There appears to be a severe problem with perl, in that the
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Exporter.pm won't compile/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create the following test case file:
cat >test.pl << EOF
use FileHandle;
chmod a+x test.pl

2. ./test.pl

Actual results:
syntax error at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Exporter.pm line 20, near "3]"
Compilation failed in require at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Carp.pm line 193.
Compilation failed in require at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/IO/File.pm line 130.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/IO/File.pm line 130.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/FileHandle.pm line 9.
Compilation failed in require at ./test.pl line 2.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./test.pl line 2.

Your test program compiles, and does nothing for me on my F8 x86_64 system, as

Can you run rpm -V perl ?

Comment 2 david.hagood 2007-10-31 21:28:55 UTC
Resolve this invalid: somehow perl-libs had been screwed up:

rpm -V perl-libs-5.8.8-30.fc8 glibc-2.7-2
