You'll note the packages for Ubuntu are for their LTS == Long Term Support release. Which would be 6.01, not 7.anything. The warning about perl is exactly that -- A warning. You are perfectly free to try and install it and see if it works. If you do hit problems with the perl modules, you can probably work around it if you try hard enough. However, by choosing to run on an unsupported platform, you are taking certain risks. SLES10 vs SLES10 SP1 is not the same as Ubuntu6.01 vs Ubuntu7.x. SP1 is an update, Ubuntu7 is an entirely different release.
