No; FreeBSD and Linux binaries cannot use each other's shared modules (XFree86 modules being an exception since they use a special OS-neutral loader). You will need to get a FreeBSD version of that shared library, or build/install a Linux version of Perl and use that. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
