  64 bit Fedora Core shell account? on 2008.02.23 13:39 AndyArmstrong

Submitted by AndyArmstrong on 2008.02.23 13:39
I'm currently attempting to resolve a problem that the Red Hat folks are having with IPC::ShareLite on 64 bit Fedora Core with Perl 5.10. It's quite important; in fact it's critical to getting 5.10 on FC.

Unfortunately I don't own a 64 bit box. It seems (thanks Nicholas) that it might be possible to reproduce the problem using a Perl built with 64 bit ints on a non-64 bit platform - but I've had no luck in that direction yet and, in any case, I'd like to test on a 64 bit machine just to be sure.

Is there anyone out there in Perl land who could provide me with a temporary shell account on a 64 bit Fedora Core machine? That'd have to be someone who didn't mind me burning enough CPU cycles to build Perl 5.10 from source.

If you can help with getting 5.10 into Fedora by providing access to a suitable box please drop me a line and earn the eternal gratitude of, well, everyone really.
