Loading... please wait.
  • I was about to jump on Dreamhost, glad I waited. But last I checked they run Perl 5.8.4, tho they claim you can roll yer own...has anyone built a private 5.8.8 or 5.10 on Dreamhost ? Any instructions or advice much appreciated!
    • Yes, they still run 5.8.4. I believe it's Debian stable. I've asked them to upgrade and they said they'd do it if they got more folks to ask for it. So please ask for it.

      I found that Perl will not compile in Dreamhost's environment due to a bug in Cwd. I've fixed that bug [cpan.org] and you have to patch the perl source tree with it.

      If this is sounding scary I can roll a tarball.
