Question Debian 2.4.26 package/module

Hello everybody,
I am using Linux 2.4.26 in a embedded system and I what to install a new module/package.
apt-get install libcrypt-ecb-perl

After I made that... Should I make another thing like load the module to the kernel or something similar?

Thanks in advance.

You installed a perl library. It has nothing to do with kernel modules so you won't be loading it into the kernel (the kernel is the core of the Linux operating system, and perl is a development environment which has many libraries and extensions, so these are 2 completely different things).

If you're writing programs in perl, or using perl programs on your system that require this library, these programs should now be able to find the package.
