[perl #84688] io/eintr.t test hangs indefinitely
Message ID:
I hit the same problem trying to install 5.14.0-RC1 with perlbrew on
some *OLD* Linux distros...

I installed 5.12.3 with no trouble, though I believe this io/eintr.t
file came in 5.13.

I wasn't sure where I could find minimum system requirements,
so I apologize if I shouldn't have bothered with this,
but I also wasn't sure where the breakdown was so I thought perhaps
someone would be interested.
It's probably my ancient kernels:

Linux 2.6.5-1.358      #1 Sat May  8 09:04:50 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386
Linux 2.6.10-1.771_FC2 #1 Mon Mar 28 00:50:14 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386

gcc (GCC) 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-7) (2003)
Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang)

I skipped the test and everything seems ok (no pun intended).

Let me know if you'd like any more information,
or please ignore this if this system is too old...
I can't imagine anybody cares.

The next oldest machine I could try it on was:

Linux 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3smp #1 SMP Fri Oct 21 04:03:26 EDT 2005 i686 i686
i386 GNU/Linux
Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg)
gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 20050721 (Red Hat 3.4.4-2) (2004)

and I had no problems. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
