I'm in the process of downloading tom's rtbt, the version you can burn on a CD and work with that way. That way I can install it, and then, if I can't get Perl working on it, I'll deal with LFS.
Don't get me wrong -- eventually, probably sometime in January -- whether this works or not, I'll do an LFS installation just to see how it all works. But for now, I so DESPERATELY don't want to go without perl!
Suddenly, it occurs to me that I may need to go get dressed. The SO-TF* is fretting around about what she's wearing, and I keep offering sad noises and words of condolence. Now, she has come in and stated her choice of clothing.
"So what are you wearing?"
I realize I have no idea whatsoever...and in panic, point at my currently-worn bathrobe.
I have to go find clothes. The download is at 40%. (Oh, and I'm downloading tiny linux stuff too. I'm not just going with toms rtbt! Please! Nobody needs to get hurt!)
Wish me luck with it.
