I'm working on installing SpamAssassin on the client end on my Unix shell account, but my host's Perl 5 implementation is set up oddly and my Makefile's not finding the dependencies. I haven't had the time to work out how to tweak it yet.
Sheesh, I shouldn't have been deleting them. I know I'm waaaaay over 1000 spams killed with Spam Assassin, and so far the only "false positive" was my usage statistics from a counter I installed 3 years ago and promptly ignored.

Yeah, I spent a few hours installing dependencies. On the plus side, that was my first experience using the CPAN (or whatever it's called - I use perl but don't know it ) module to pull down everything and I was amazed with how well it worked.
CRZ: CPAN can be great, but be prepared to be frustrated, annoyed, and ready to lob large objects from high places when it doesn't work (i.e. when it doesn't work, it really doesn't work). Get nice and friendly with the ``look '' command.
vsp: You'll have to set some environment variables to tell CPAN to install to your home directory tree instead of to the system-wide perl library directory. Then you have to add those directories to perl's @INC variable. Alternatively, you could install your own Perl in your home dir (provided you're allowed and have the space). Also check that there's not more than one version of Perl on the system--Solaris likes to encourage you to install a ``current'' version and leave the one that was installed with the system alone (due to OS reliance upon it, I presume).
how come you're so afraid of things that dont make any sense to you? do you water your raisins daily? do you have any raisins? is there anything that does make sense to you? are you afraid of twelve button suits? how come you're so afraid to stop talking?
