Troubles finding strict.pm ...?


Hi, I just chroot-ed into my root account and I was setting things up according to the LFS document. I went to compile the Linux API headers (as before), and figured all would go well, as it did before. However, I got a nasty little error message.

Code:
root:/sources/linux-2.6.27# make headers_check
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  UPD     include/linux/version.h
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/docproc
  HOSTCC  scripts/unifdef
  INSTALL include/asm-generic (12 files)
Can't locate strict.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /tools/lib/perl5/5.8./i686-linux 
   /tools/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /tools/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux 
   /tools/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /tools/lib/perl5/site_perl .) 
   at scripts/headers_install.pl line 19.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at scripts/headers_install.pl line 19.
make[2]: *** [/sources/linux-2.6.27/usr/include/asm-generic/.install] Error 2
make[1]: *** [asm-generic] Error 2
make: *** [headers_install] Error 2
I grabbed this from another user. My platform is actually x86-64, but oh well.

The funny thing is, is that I copied strict.pm from /tools/lib/perl5/5.8.8 to /sources/linux-2.6.27, and tried it again and it worked. I'm going alone fine now, I'm just kindof worried that I had to copy strict.pm to the Linux directory in order to get things to click...

Any input on how to really fix this problem?

Hi,

Are you sure you did not forget these steps?

- 5.26.1. Installation of Perl -

mkdir -pv /tools/lib/perl5/5.8.8
cp -Rv lib/* /tools/lib/perl5/5.8.8


BTW: You are building and 'older' LFS (6.2), you do know that 6.4 is available.....

Yeah, I'm using 6.4... that was just the error dump from another user that I found on the boards with the same (unresolved) problem.

Anyways, I think I did that...

I was probably going to do a rebuild tonight anyways.
I'll chroot into it again and give it ago.

Thanks for the advice.
