vi error on redhat!


Guys,
I installed perl v5.8.5 built for i686-linux on my system recently. From that day if I want to run my vi edition I am getting th error as:
Code:
vim: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am using:
Code:
[root@station130 CORE]# uname -a
Linux station130 2.6.9-5.EL #1 Wed Jan 5 19:22:18 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Could you please assist me??
Thank you!

There has been a bug report on this issue.

You may find that upgrading vim or perl helps. If not, the bug report suggests adding in the missing symbolic link:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so /usr/lib/libperl.so
(you may need to check the Perl version numbers in that link by first looking in /usr/lib/perl5)

Ya I did all that stuff but unable to run vi editor.
So, I installed Vim version 5.5 and it's working now except with the arrow buttons.
Actually when I press the arrow button when inserting some text,I am unable to move the cursor positions instead it's printing A B C for different arrows.
Why this is happening??

But, we can do that using the arrow keys as well. But,it's not working and printing some characters as stated above.
