Perl5 on Linux/MIPS

Perl5 on Linux/MIPS
Message ID:
My goal is to get Perl 5.00503 properly running on a Cobalt RaQ 2 which
runs Linux 2.0.34 kernel on a MIPS R3000 processor.  I carefully went
through "./Configure" multiple times and each time, I can get Perl to
build.  Many of my test programs work fine, so that's a start.

The problem is that I have a server written in Perl that needs to
execute the "socket()" function.  When I try to run this program, Perl
comes back with:

socket: Protocol not supported at line xxx

I read as many FAQs as I could find, and the best I could find was an
entry in the Perl FAQ that comes with the source code that indicated a
problem with SunOS and Solaris defining the various network settings
differently in the header files.  I tried searching the archives of this
list as well, but I didn't find anything specifically addressing MIPS
and Linux.

I have built Perl successfully many times on Intel machines running
Linux, but this MIPS machine has me stumped.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
