  • Be careful while upgrading libxml or libxslt to keep your XML::LibXML or XML::LibXSLT libraries within compatible range. $work has used these for awhile and we've learned that it is not ok to upgrade the perl or C library independently without checking that the two consider each other compatible.

  • That's an example of why we install all of the gnu tools on our solaris machines at work.
  • I've developed on Solaris for years and actually think it's quite a nice platform. When we bring a new host online I always ask the nice sysadmins to do two things

    1) Install gnu tools.
    2) Build a stock Perl from scratch.

    Once done, I'm quite the happy developer. But yeah, I've felt your pain in the past. Just that now I know how to make things a little less painful.

  • Hi Folks

    Sounds like all us Slowlaris suffers are coming to the same conclusion:

    Install Perl in order to install ack!

  • I gave up on grep -r a while ago, even on platforms that supported that option, because it just didn't work the way I wanted it to or, in some cases, at all.

    Ack is definitely the way to go.
