View Full Version : [ubuntu] New perl breaks some scripts with segfault

October 12th, 2010, 12:34 PM
I got some perl scripts that are broken by the new maverick perl version. I am trying to downgrade without success:

pmatos@pm18pc01:~/$ sudo apt-show-versions -a -p perl
perl 5.10.1-12ubuntu2 install ok installed
perl 5.10.1-8ubuntu2 unknown gb.archive.ubuntu.com
perl 5.10.1-12ubuntu2 maverick gb.archive.ubuntu.com
perl/maverick uptodate 5.10.1-12ubuntu2
pmatos@pm18pc01:~/$ sudo apt-get install perl=5.10.1-8

What am I doing wrong?
