Subject: Re: Problem installing Sybperl under Linux
Date: Oct 3 1997 11:19PM

I'm using slakware 3.2 (linux 2.0.30), perl 5.00401, sybperl 2.07 or
2.07b. I've set DBLIBVS=0 in the CONFIG file,  I am using the elf-port
from  Michael Pippler's site, and I am  getting the following errors:

If I do a nm -s on any of the archive libs it tells me the the file
format is not recognized.  The file command said that the libs are ar
archive files.
