I'm trying to upgrade to perl 5.8.8 via CentOSPlus, but am having no
luck. Here is what I have done.
# yum list | grep perl
. . .
perl.i386 3:5.8.5-12.1 installed
. . .
Created /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo with:
#additional packages that extend functionality of existing packages
name=CentOS-$releasever - Plus
exclude=kernel kernel-devel kernel-smp-* kernel-hugemem* kernel-largesmp*
# sudo yum --enablerepo=centosplus upgrade perl
Setting up Upgrade Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
Excluding Packages from CentOS-4 - Plus
Could not find update match for perl
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion
What am I missing?
Actually, looking at the "yum list" output, it looks like the current
version installed is of the i386 architecture, while this machine is
x86_64? Is that the problem? If so is it safe to install the i386
package? Is there an easy way to do this via yum?
# uname -a
Linux dev 2.6.9-42.0.10.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Feb 27 09:40:21 EST 2007
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I'm begining to think the previous admin made some poor decisions on
