Subject: [gentoo-dev] Need testers for new perl-modules eclass
Date: Wed, 31 Jul 2002 09:59:42
1 Anyone who has either perl 5.6 or perl 5.8 who has a free minute or two, could you test the attachment on bug id 5733 ( )?
2 The modification from the current perl-modules eclass file is that it adds the PREFIX to the perl Makefile.PL line. In 5.6, perl was a little oblivious to whether or not you specified this here or later during the make, but perl 5.8 violates the sandbox if it isn't included initially. I've tested it with perl 5.6.1 and perl 5.8.0, x86, but would like verification from users on both sides of the perl versions before committing.
3 The new eclass file would go in /usr/portage/eclass and replaces the current one (so either backup or rsync afterwards). Thanks all!
