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

I had the same problem. For some reason, perl-5.6-5.6 was not installing before the apps that needed it. I downloaded the .deb manually, installed it, and the errors when away.

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 http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages is most useful.
Hope that helps,

Hello all. I'm trying to install the mime-support package and am getting

perl-5.004 and perl-5.005 installed, as various packages require different

'apt-get update'.

Any ideas as-to what's broken would be appreciated. dpkg --search glob.pm' returns no matches.
