Description lionel tricon 2000-01-18 17:36:01 UTC
The network part of perl seems broken on RH 6.0 (alpha) :

an example :

# perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/alpha-linux/sys/socket.ph
Prototype mismatch: sub main::__need_size_t vs () at (eval 46) line 1.
String found where operator expected at (eval 185) line 1, near "&__const
t sockaddr'"
        (Missing operator before  'struct sockaddr'?)

but when i recompile perl (perl-5_005_02.tgz and only the binary), the
trouble is resolved and i can use perl in all my network scripts. I saw
that there is no rpm upgrade for this problem.

that's work on SuSE 6.1 alpha :-) so i suppose that it's a bug in the rpm
i have an application wrote in perl which use some network capabilities.

Any thoughts ?
