Re: Perl page fault - old news ??

I'm learning Cygwin and Perl. Perl is currently 5.8.0 under Windows 98. I have run setup today so I think everything is current.

Yesterday I also got a 'bunch' of faults while installing DBI from CPAN, (but it *seems* to have installed OK despite several such error message boxes).

I don't know what's going on. Searching gmane.os.cygwin for "Perl crashes" shows postings which suggest that 5.8.0 has some problems with CPAN moudules (and more?).

Is there something I can do or should do to make this work better?

I use Perl 5.8.0, DBI and CPAN on Cygwin. Never had any page faults. I suggest you think that the problem lies outside of this and that perhaps your Cygwin installation is a bit faulty.
