Perl Libraries for Centos 5

Postby elameyi » 2012/04/08 19:19:58

I am on Oracle Linux (OL) 5 update 6 and I am having trouble executing a perl script compiled with perl libraries version 5.10 on what I can only assume to be be Linux 6 (I do not have access to the source environment and so cannot be certain). The perl libraries on OL 5 update 6 are version 5.8.8. I am having trouble locating 5.10 version of the perl libraries for OL 5 update 6. Do the rpms for perl libraries version 5.10 exist for Centos 5? If so where can I can I obtain them from? Prompt assistance is much appreciated!

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

The corresponding CentOS version would be 5.6 which is obsolete and unsupported. The current packages for CentOS-5.8 perl-5.8.8-38.el5 can be found on a mirror site near you. The corresponding CentOS-6.2 version is perl-5.10.1-119.el6_1.1. If you must have the obsolete 5.6 versions then see

If you do not have Oracle support, along with the associated access to repositories and updates, your best option is probably to migrate to CentOS-5. The section "Migration from RHEL5 to CentOS5" should be generally applicable.

If in doubt about what you have provide more information about your system by running "./" and showing us the output file.
