perl install on redhat 9 - PERL Beginners

Hi, I have installed perl 8 on redhat 9 and I installed it from source. (not an rpm) however, when I did a redhat up2date, the rpm's were then re-installed. I think that the rpm installed perl in /usr/bin and the source install put it in /usr/local/bin can I safely uninstall the perl rpm's without messing up the other installation from source? Thanks Rick -- Rick Bragg Green Mountain Network web: [url]http://www.gmnet.net[/url]...

    Default perl install on redhat 9

    Hi,

    I have installed perl 8 on redhat 9 and I installed it from source. (not
    an rpm) however, when I did a redhat up2date, the rpm's were then
    re-installed.

    I think that the rpm installed perl in /usr/bin
    and the source install put it in /usr/local/bin

    can I safely uninstall the perl rpm's without messing up the other
    installation from source?

    Thanks

    Rick

    Perl 8? What cool features does that have? Can I borrow your time
    machine?

    Hmmm... I don't use RedHat, so I'm not sure how up2date works, but I'd
    guess that it may have seen Perl 5.8 as a failed RPM installation or
    something.

    Quite possibly. You only need to know this if you did anything besides
    the default ./configure (i.e. purposely installed it in
    /var/logs/not_really_a_log/ha/ive/hidden/perl to be silly/)

    It shouldn't hurt your system too much. I suppose there is a good
    chance that uninstalling an RPM will uninstall a dependency that the
    source install links to. Why are you installing a source version
    anyways? You shouldn't mix and match sources and RPMS. It's bad form
    and can lead to problems.
