This question about Installation of Foswiki, Configuration, Not sure...: Answered line 319 Error

Argument "5.9.0" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at /var/www/html/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Configure/ line 319.

Is the exact error im getting. I had to fix several .pm file errors but this one im at a loss. I used to program VB and yes it looks like below that they are trying to take a string and treat it like a number and that is where the error is at. 319 is the first line.

if ( $version =~ /^\d/ && $version < $rcsverRequired ) {

# RCS too old
$err .=
. ' is too old, upgrade to version '
. $rcsverRequired
. ' or higher.';
if ($err) {
$mess .= $this->ERROR(
$err . <<HERE

Your system must have a recently updated RCS. RCS changed from a simple decimal version to a major.minor.patch style version, so when we extract the version, it's no longer a number. You can just comment out that whole block of code. This is fixed in the new Foswiki 2.0
