Two perls Installed

Postby Steve » 04. November 2003 23:16

I have two versions of perl installed now!!

one of them is the one that came with redhat and the other is the lampp one.

now my programs see the redhat one and when i install a cpan module using webmin it goes to teh lampp perls dir.

how can i remove the redhat version of perl so the lampp one sticks?

It's not easy.

Your RedHat Perl is importent for your system. So you can't deinstall it.

Your XAMPP Perl may be importent for your web apps. So you can't deinstall it.

I know that is no solution. But that's the truth! ;)

i thought that was the case

i have temporeraly just replaced the perl binarys to symlinks to the lampp binarys...

i still have backups of the original files tho so it should be ok :)

Hi,

Code: Select all
mv /usr/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl_ori
ln -s /opt/lampp/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl


should do the trick.

i did the above.

i am still having problems though. i installed rrdtool for a webmin module after doing the above, but the rrdtool files the module needs got installed to

usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/RRDp.pm


so when i run the module i get the following error....
Software error:

Can't locate RRDs.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/lampp/lib/perl5/5.8.6/i686-linux /opt/lampp/lib/perl5/5.8.6 /opt/lampp/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/i686-linux /opt/lampp/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /opt/lampp/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at sysstats-rrd-lib.pl line 33.

Hi,

then your Problem is another...
Webmin installs perl modules to the system perl.
please check the perl modul in webmin to change the Path.

I'm not quite sure where you have to change it, but I'll think of it for the next webmin release.

rrdtool is not a perl module, so i installed it via the command line / rpm not through webmin.

have you or anyone else gotten rrdtool installed so that it puts files in the xampp perl folder instead of the system perl folder? if so how did you do it?

rrdtool is the engine for my server stats webmin module (sysstats/webminstats) so i need to figure out how to get it installed.
