If you want to use an rpm format for perl, you need to get the src.rpm
for perl, install it (rpm -ivh perl*src.rpm) cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
and edit the perl.spec file. Find the line that says "%define threading 
1" and change it to "%define threading  0". Now find the line that says
"%define perlrel 88" (my sub-version is 88, yours may differ) and append
"_no_thread". Now compile with rpmbuild -ba perl.spec. When it is
finished you will need to install it in /usr/local/bin instead of
/usr/bin. Use "rpm -ivh --nodeps --relocate /usr/bin=/usr/local/bin
/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/perl*.rpm" (assuming you have no other perl
rpms in that directory). The --nodeps is required as some other stuff
that perl uses (and is still available) does not have the same
sub-version matching anymore.

To get past some errors in the RH9/Fedora series, you need to change the
LANG variable in the shell you are using. Try "export LANG=C". That has
solved many of my CPAN errors during the unpack and build Makefile
process that are caused by variable substitution errors.

See above.

Find a LUG near you, join their mailing list and start giving all your
