Module-Build-0.23 On a Slackware Linux system with perl v5.6.1, I had a problem with Module-Build-0.23 while installing Log-Dispatch-2.09 $ cd Log-Dispatch-2.09 $ perl Makefile.PL perl Build.PL Checking whether your kit is complete... Looks good Creating new 'Build' script for 'Log-Dispatch' version '2.09' Can't call method "find_perl_interpreter" on an undefined value at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/Module/Build/Compat.pm line 150. Going back to version 0.22 helped. BTW: in the ReportBug form I could not select version 0.23, last version displayed was 0.22 Regards, Martin Titz

I Got the same error trying to install Text::WikiFormat on a fresh gentoo box. Many other CPAN modules installed fine, but I had to drop Module::Build down to 0.21 to make it work: Show quoted text
cpan> install K/KW/KWILLIAMS/Module-Build-0.21.tar.gz

Aha - I was really confused about this problem, but now I understand. The problem was that the Makefile.PL in modules like Log::Dispatch 2.09 was created with an older version of Module::Build, and didn't include the 'build_class' parameter. I'll add a future-proofing patch to Module/Build/Compat.pm so that it can work with older Makefile.PLs it generated. -Ken
