That's the config file telling FreeRADIUS to load a perl module, that
shouldn't work.

And that shows us the the real perl module. Could you try running "perl
-cw /usr/lib/linotp/" in a console? That might show a
bit more verbose if this file could be executed or not.

And since you're using an old version of FreeRADIUS: using rlm_perl with
version older than 2.2 may segfault when using perl in threaded mode.
