Hi Yohannes,

The error message (Per_TStack) reminds me of a perl version
incompatibility we had encountered here when using Ubuntu as well. The
version of perl it was finding on the system was 5.10, but the perl
scripts had some issues with that, so we needed to use Perl 5.8.* (we
used 5.8.9 to get it to work on the Ubuntu we tested it on).

What's the version of perl on your server machine? You can type the
following in a terminal to find out:
> perl -version

If your perl version is 5.10, can you try the instructions at:

Please tell us if that doesn't work.
All the best and regards,
