Re: problem with perl in unstable
Just as a guess: have you installed perl 5.6.0 on this machine from
source? If so, you'll need to provide access to the older 5.005_03
libraries for some of the apt scripts to work. I used some symlinks
within the /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0 directory to point to libraries in
/usr/lib/perl5/5.005, which works (albeit not elegantly).
do a perl -V to get the contents of @INC (which holds the directories
that will be searched by perl looking for modules) and see if the files
listed in the error messages below appear in that path.
