Problem installing Net::Pcap in Slackware 12.1...strange error!


Hi, I'am trying to install Net-Pcap-0.26 perl module and I'am getting this strange error...can somebody tell me what's wrong with this, I'am totally confused...I'm using Slackware 12.1, perl 5.8.8, gcc 4.2.3, kernel 2.6.24.5, libpcap-0.9.7-i486 and tcpdump-3.9.8-i486:

I tried to install it manually, too, but same problem occured. Does somebody managed to install that module in Slackware 12.1 yet? Thank you for any help you might provide.

Regards,
Nenad


PS: I so sorry if this is not the right place for this tread, feel free to move it to the right place.

This might be better if you asked for it to be moved to the Slackware forum.

This is odd, none of the Slackware "perl's" will
make this module ( slack 11, 12, 12.1 )

Most other Linux's : no problems.

Compiling a new perl is a possibility, just tried
with perl-5.8.9-RC1, and you have the option to add
"Net::Pcap" during the " ./Configure " process.
( You will be asked, which modules to be included. )

And this perl did make the module, incl. the tests.
As this is experimental, I did no install, compiling
only.
