Subject: cpan POSIX tries to install latest full perl
$ sudo cpan POSIX Loading internal null logger. Install Log::Log4perl for logging messages CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.53) Reading '/root/.cpan/Metadata' Database was generated on Wed, 26 Aug 2015 17:17:02 GMT CPAN: Module::CoreList loaded ok (v5.20150520) Running install for module 'POSIX' CPAN: Digest::SHA loaded ok (v5.95) Checksum for /root/.cpan/sources/authors/id/R/RJ/RJBS/perl-5.22.0.tar.bz2 ok ^C bzip2: Control-C or similar caught, quitting. ^CUsing Tar:/bin/tar xf "/root/.cpan/sources/authors/id/R/RJ/RJBS/perl-5.22.0.tar.bz2": ^CCouldn't untar /root/.cpan/sources/authors/id/R/RJ/RJBS/perl-5.22.0.tar.bz2: child died with signal 2, without coredump I am not certain what the correct behaviour should be... maybe just say, "haha, not doing that"? (The set of such modules is small.)
Another example: overload. So Module::CoreList?

I see another behavior: CPAN: Term::ANSIColor loaded ok (v4.02) CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.51) Reading '/usr/local/src/CPAN/Metadata' Database was generated on Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:17:02 GMT Running install for module 'POSIX' The most recent version "1.53" of the module "POSIX" is part of the perl-5.22.0 distribution. To install that, you need to run force install POSIX --or-- install R/RJ/RJBS/perl-5.22.0.tar.bz2 So, what's different in your cpan run? The CPAN::MyConfig configuration?

I dunno. This is a new Perl (5.22.0) installed from scratch.

Ah. I know... from your error message. I might actually have a wrapper talking... a wrapper that does 'force' :-P
