OK, What I did was to copy the contents of 5.10.1 (which is located here) opt/lampp/lib/perl5/5.10.1
and copied it to opt/lampp/lib/site_perl/5.10.1

What should I set the permissions to?

The permissions should be the same as the other files in the /opt/lampp/lib/perl5/5.10.1 folders - it looks like that could be 411 or 644 either.

BTW - after some fighting with Fedora, I have a new Fedora 16 VM running (I'm typing this from it). Later I'm going to set up LAMPP 1.7.7 so I have a working environment. That way I can see whats going on with folders and include paths.

I do have a question, are you using this with a Perl program you wrote, or a script or what???

Good Luck

Did you get that working, or not?

Despite their 'Open Source' like presence, there is currently NOT a Community Edition that is downloadble - at least as far as I can tell.

Good Luck

OK - I have grokked out nearly all the issues. Its complicated but do-able. I'm on the last hurdle - I need a Perl Monk to get me past it (I'm in "post-compile GD" mode). I'm now dealing with Perl interpreter errors caused by previous failed Perl compiles at the p-code stage. Perl is a byte code interpreter that pre-compiles raw script code into what amounts to symbols (much like some Basic interpreters used to do). This means fast execution as the code does not need to be interpreted every time. (/me shuts up) :mrgreen:

Bottom line - As GD.pm is dependent on a C library (gdlib), it has to be compiled. Sooo. you have to have the C code librabry installed plus you have to have GCC (Gnu Compiler Collection) installed in Linux for it to work. Some Perl Modules can 'just be installed' - as they ONLY contain Perl code. All that said - I managed to get an error free compile. Noe I need to learn about cleaning out the @INC array.

:shock:

Well that sounds promising! Once you get it all worked out I'll be excited to try it on my box.
I find it interesting the way this all works together even though I don't understand.

Thanks

I talked with ME (aka Mister Ed) :) and the free agoracart ver6 is not released yet. The paid ver6 is out and being used but that doesn't do you much good. I'll keep checking.

Ah well - be that as it may, the GD problems seem to be deep rooted. Each time I have gotten through a roadblock, a new one appears. Then I Google it, and find (again) dozens of unanswered posts going back years. FUGGLY!
