    Post perl not recognized

    I am attempting to install zimbra onto Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 x64 bit edition using this tarball:

    However when I run the install script I get this error:

    Press Return to continue

    Have you tried looking at the install script to see what it is looking for ? Why are you trying to install version 5; is this a new installation ?

    You only have a small part of it. ( I guess.)

    sudo apt-get install libperl-dev
    ... will probably do.
