libperl.a - Debian PPC - Perl 5.8.4

Postby mirage4d » 2007-03-21 16:52


I have a perl Makefile that is failing because it can't link to /usr/lib/libperl.a.
I know this library is shuffled around a bit somewhat with different distros (within /usr/lib/perl/CORE for instance in Slackware), but I can't seem to locate it in Debian PPC. Just wondering if someone can point me to it, or enlighten me as to if it is even present in Debian PPC. Thanks.

It should be in /usr/lib/libperl.a . You may not have the libperl-dev package installed.

Just for future reference you can easily find out where a file is located and which packages contains it by installing apt-file, then apt-file update, apt-file search libperl.a
