Re: installing packages: can't locate file/glob.pm

A 'dpkg --search Glob.pm' (it is case sensitive) gave me a:

perl-5.005: /usr/lib/perl5/5.005/File/DosGlob.pm
perl-5.6: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6/i386-linux/File/Glob.pm
perl-5.6: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6/File/DosGlob.pm

So I guess the relevant package for you would be perl-5.6.
Is it possible that yours is corrupt? You could try to
reinstall it. Btw, I found that when I am looking for a
particular file, the search tool at 
is most useful. 

Hope that helps,
