I am running portmanager and updating all dependencies along the way. I am finding that perl gets updated to the system version. I want to keep it to version 5.8. . FreeBSD4-11 is my OS.

so in order to get portmanager to stop updating perl do I add the following to /usr/local/etc/portmanager/pm-020.conf

---- snip ---

IGNORE|lang/perl5.8|


--- snip ---


will that work?

It should work. I have it configured to ignore JAVA and OpenOfice. It
just issues a message in the log that the port is being ignored.

Out of curiosity, why can you not run a newer version of Perl on that OS?




I am running the newest version of PERL. I am running perl 5.8.8 which is the latets port. for some reason when I am running portmanager and update dependencies it wants to reverts perl back to the system perl. any clues how to keep perl updated but not set to the system port?

cheers,

Noah
