Greetings,
I am attempting to set up webwork on an old Gateway machine discarded by one of my colleagues and am trying to follow the simple " Specific instructions for installing WeBWorK on SUSE Linux 10.2 especially for the unix novice" . On reaching the point for installing mod perl, I have reached a stumbling block. When trying to run the command perl Makefile.PL MP_USE_STATIC=1 .....
I get the following error messages

./Makefile.PL: line 7:
/etc/bash.bashrc{MOD_PERL_2_BUILD}: No such file or
directory
./Makefile.PL: line 12: syntax error near unexpected
token $old_modperl_version,' ./Makefile.PL: line 12: my($old_modperl_version,
$old_modperl_pm,$old_Apache2_pm);'

Any suggestion would be helpful. Thanks.
Richard

Hi Richard,

mod_perl comes with SUSE 10.2, I believe. It is probably called something like libapache-mod-perl or libapache2-mod-perl. Look for the package with yast, install it, and you should be set. Several of the other perl modules can probably be installed this way.

Lars.

Hi Richard,

You want to install the apache2-mod_perl package.
