Re: [TCLUG:4352] Installing new perl.

Correct me if I am wrong but which is needed by perl-5.00502-2
is part of the glibc. The references to point to
glibc-2.1-0.990219.i386. So, I need to install the glibc in it's entirety
in order to get

[root@mi-recordz rtp]# rpm -q glibc

[rtp@mi-recordz rtp]$ locate libdb

Any warnings before I upgrade to the newer glibc?
