much like the error i had before with freebsd - i am getting the dreaded seg fault error when installing perl 5.8 - unlike last time i had this error its only this port that is erorring - it will compile just not install.

Every other package i have compiled installs fine - i did notice while geting an update to the port tree that there were about 150 patches, could these be a factor.

Seems raather strange its only doing it on one package at install to /usr

is the error i get when it gets to the install part, yet i have compiled lighttpd php sql mc kernel and loads of other packages, its just perl 5.8 that is being a pain

will try it again see if i can get the full error

seems i have managed to sort it - dont know if it was where i deleted the file from distfiles fodler and let it re-download it or if it was because i installed some other packages, more than likely a bad download but would have thought the md5 check would have picked that up

strage how it was doing it on one package at the same place everytime, yet i could build evrything else just fine, still all is working fine now :)

edit: after doing a bit more googling i dont think this is a segfault, just an error to let you now it couldnt comlete and stoped - the dump bit is a bit misleading

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
