Exclamation FC5 libperl.so cannot be found, but it's there!


Hi!

I installed/upgraded my perl packages recently, right after that, i tried to install the perl support fot xchat.

but it yielded this error:

Missing Dependency: libperl.so is needed by package xchat-perl

So i did a
# locate libperl.so

and this is what cam out:

/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.3/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.4/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.5/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.6/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.7/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so
/usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so

As you can see, the libperl.so is there, but the RPManager does not find it...

what should I do now?

please help

are you not installing this via yum? xchat is in there and will easily resolve all dependencie for you.

no, I wanted to install the latest version of xchat, and this one is not available from repositories, yet.
So I tried to handle it like that.

Plus: the installation that comes from the Fedora repo, has not the perl plug, so I need to install it manually, anyway.

I just realized, that when I install the Xchat version with yum, the perl-plugin is not being installes along.

Also, there doesen't seem to be a perl plugin, for this xchat version either.
(At least not when, searching with yum.)

I guess it has something to do, with my 64bit version of both, the client and the perl-libs.

both are installed, but they don't seem to be compatible.
Anyway, could someone suggest how to solve this?
Installing the 32bit verion of Perl seems to be quite reasonable, but I don't really like that Idea.

please help.
