That would mean rebuilding all packages dependent on perl (loads of them) and
destroying already installed cpan modules, destroying paths etc. F-8 is stable
release, where we don't want break things.

Comment 2 David 2008-07-01 22:47:20 UTC
I built a perl-5.10.0-0.fc8.i386.rpm package by taking the F9 source rpm and
installed tcsh for F8 and built the rpm

So is this stable to use on a F8 server?


Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-07-02 07:26:17 UTC
I can't guarantee functionality on your server. I'd rather don't upgrade. It's
also possible that some other dependent packages will fail after upgrade.

The biggest problem are the paths. Check if your scripts still can find all
modules. Especially if you are using cpan modules. We had typo paths in spec
file, so use at least perl-5.10.0-29.fc9 for rebuild.
