Re: Trouble getting webmin-postfix; apt-get says perl isn'tinstalledbutitis

Actually, I don't have woody in sources.list. I've never had it there ... I
did install one woody package by downloading it off the Web site and using
dpkg -i. I believe that was webmin-postfix. Everything else that's not in
potato has come from:

deb-src http://www.braincells.com/debian potato/
deb http://www.braincells.com/debian potato/

Well, that's not entirely true. I did install module CPAN and it did somehow
add Perl 5.6.1 to my system. Not really sure how it did that -- I don't
think it did this in a Debian-specific way. Could that be messing me up?
