Hi guys!

:angel:
I begin with linux and I've some questions about it and I think I need your help.

1. First how Can I Know the name of my architecture (you know i386 or i686). Is there a shell command to do this (or a file where it is stored ?)

2. Second I try to install Perl 5.8.0 under My red hat 8.0 from the sources.
2.1 I gunzip the file
2.2 I tar -xvf the result
2.3 ./Configure
2.4 make =>this is this step which failed. I've a beautiful error message :
[color=green]"make : *** Pas de regle pour fabriquer la cible '<interne>', necessaire pour 'miniperlmain.o'. Arret "[color=green]

I dont understand what is the problem. If someone can help me please :eggface:

For your first question yes there is a way to know if it is i386 or i686. Type the following command:

uname -a

As far as you trying to install Perl on Redhat, it appears you took the right steps. Always read the INSTALL file and make sure you are doing it right, but off the top of my memory that does look exactly right. As far as the error message I do not know French so I cannot tell you how to fix it. Maybe translate that error message for me or try installing the English version and tell me what the error message is. Thanks :)

Okay in english it must be :
"
make: *** No rule to make the target '<intern>' necessary to miniperlmain.o.Abort
"

Ahhh I think I know. After you do your

tar -xvf

make sure you goto the directory it made. You will probably need to type something like:

cd Perl-5.8.0

or whatever directory it made. The name of the directory is usually the name of the file without the .tar.gz

Once you get inside that directory then type ls and make sure you see all the files like INSTALL or README, etc. Finally once you are in the right directory type

./Configure
make

and hopefully that resolves your problem. Let me know what happens.
