how can I downgrade Perl version on redhat 9.0 ?
 
I am quite new user of Linux ( version of my system is redhat 9.0)
During using some software for my study, I found it required lower version of Perl like 5.6.x.

How can I easily downgrade the version without breaking system?
Is it ok just to install the lower version after removing higher version Perl I used forcibly (by 'rm '??)?? Is there some tool to install or remove program in this case?

Please give me some advice to downgrade perl version to v.5.6.X.


Thank you in advnace!!!!

rpm -e perl

If other programs depend on it, it will give you and error.

Hi, I also needed to downgrade my perl 5.8 to perl 5.6.1, in order to use qmail-scanner with qmail.

If perl 5.8 is really in used by other programs, then what can we do to replace it?

Please help. thanks.
