Hello, I have just upgraded to Perl 5.8.8 as a part of the OS X 10.4 to 10.5 upgrade. I attempted to install CPAN::Reporter, but the tests failed horribly. I was assisted by a helpful person on IRC / #perl-qa who reminded me that I should upgrade my Test::Harness. Since I was running that last official release as part of the Perl I understand that it might not be possible to set this prerequisite in Module::Build and related, but perhaps this should be mentioned in the INSTALL instructions. Btw. thanks for a marvelous module - and let me know if you need anything else from me. jonasbn % uname -a Darwin hyperstation.local 9.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 9.0.0: Tue Oct 9 21:35:55 PDT 2007; root:xnu-1228~1/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386 % perl -v This is perl, v5.8.8 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level

Hi. CPAN::Reporter requires CPAN 1.9203, which itself requires a "modern" Test::Harness, so I'm not exactly sure what was going on. What version of Perl were you upgrading from? And how were you upgrading? It would be very helpful if you could elaborate (log? screenshot?) on what "failed horribly" means. Thanks, David

Hello, I upgraded my long running Perl 5.8.6, which had CPAN::Reporter working, with newer T::H and newer CPAN, to a Perl 5.8.8 as part of the OS X upgrade from 10.4 to 10.5. So T::H and CPAN would be those version shipped with that particular release, unless Apple have tinkered. I now they have done so before. CPAN, would be: 1.76_02 Test::Harness: 2.64 I have attached a test from an attempt to install CPAN::Reporter, which failed somewhat the same way 1.02 jonasbn -- AIM: BjonasN Gtalk: jonasbn@gmail.com ICQ: 62401545 MSN: jonasbn@io.dk

Note for self: After some discussion on AIM, this may be due to a bug in Test::Harness 2.99_02, which was installed on the OS being upgraded. I'm going to downgrade the ticket severity unless I get additional reports like this or unless the problem shows up on a system without an alpha version of Test::Harness.

After additional reports by email investigation by Andy Armstrong, I've determined this is a valid bug in CPAN::Reporter::PrereqCheck that will be fixed in the next release. David
