libtext-csv-perl dependency problem


Hi all,
trying to apt-get libtext-csv-perl and keep getting told that it depends on perlapi-5.8.8 so try to install that and it says that it is selecting perl-base instead and that I already have the latest version.

btw I'm running Ubuntu netbook edition 9.10 (through necessity on an O2 Joggler tablet)

Works OK here, Ubuntu 9.10. Did you do : (sudo) apt-get update ?
The version is unsupported and /etc/apt/sources.list must point to "old releases"
Code:
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic multiverse universe
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-updates main multiverse universe
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-security main multiverse universe
If you still cannot install the package, this will work :
1) sudo cpan
2) cpan > install Text::CSV_XS Text::CSV

A manual install is also easy to do ..
http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/...SV_XS-0.88.tgz
http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/...SV-1.21.tar.gz
cd Text-CSV_XS-0.88/ && perl Makefile.PL && make && sudo make install
etc.

.

Thank you so much - didn't need to try the second part. Oh how a little knowledge can be dangerous.
