perl 5.20 missing fakethe.h perlsfio.h

Asked by Sebastian Podjasek

Not sure that this is Ubuntu/Debian issue but after upgrading 14.04 to 14.10 (with new perl package 5.20) due to lack of these two files I wasn't able to build for ex. Session::Token module from source.

Solution was simple:
sudo touch /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20/CORE/fakethr.h
sudo touch /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20/CORE/perlsfio.h

You didn't mention which version of Ubuntu you are using. This is crucial information to provide.

I assume you have this issue because you are probably running Ubuntu 14.10.

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS has those missing files. Ubuntu 14.10 does not have them (yet).

They are both in the perl Ubuntu package, but only for 14.04 LTS.

markrijckenberg: fixed, I though that package version will be enough - 14.04 LTS was based on perl 5.18, 14.10 introduced 5.20 with this bug
