Subject:   pkg-add - package insists on old version of Perl
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I am trying to install the Amanda server package. I am running FreeBSD 
8.2 with Perl 5.12.3.

The package lists Perl 5.10.1 as a dependency and since my newer version 
of Perl conlicts with the older version the install fails. pkg_add with 
"-f" just tries to force the installation of the older Perl and fails.

How do I get the package to install and use the Perl I already have? I'd 
rather not downgrade Perl.
