Should I build ports/lang/perl5.8 WITH_THREADS=yes ? I run FreeBSD-7.0-stable on old compaq armada1700 laptop. I don't use perl myself much, but many ports I use rely on it.
How will this affect performance of perl on my laptop? More to the point, are there any ports which require perl with threads? For example, can ImageMagick post-build test failures (using PerlMagick, perl5.8.8 exited on signal 11) be related to the fact that perl is installed with no threaded support? many thanks anton -- Anton Shterenlikht Room 2.6, Queen's Building Mech Eng Dept Bristol University University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TR, UK Tel: +44 (0)117 928 8233 Fax: +44 (0)117 929 4423 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
