Subject: Bootstrapping to custom dir no longer works
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 367b
Please find attached a full session of following directions as per c Note how at the end ~/perl5/ is created and referenced, despite ~/perl5-ll/ having been used earlier. It is also odd that --no-manpages had no effect, and that `perl Makefile.PL` triggered a CPAN.pm configuration + an installation of EUMM ( that was *way before* `make test` had a chance to run)

Whoops that 'c' above was supposed to be: ...as per https://metacpan.org/pod/release/HAARG/local-lib-2.000019/lib/local/lib.pm#The-bootstrapping-technique

This mostly seems to be working as expected. 1. --bootstrap has always installed CPAN/EUMM/EUI/MB immediately. It wouldn't really be possible to move it later in the process. 2. --no-manpages prevents installation of man pages by CPAN.pm for later installs. It doesn't effect the installs from the bootstrapping process, or the install of local::lib. This is also how it has always worked, but it should be fixed. 3. The local::lib directory needs to be specified when activating it. This is covered in the bootstrapping documentation ("If you passed to bootstrap a directory other than default...").

I could swear this was not the behavior around 2012. But maybe I just misremember. Show quoted text

*ARGH* I misread this twice (I did check back before filing the bug, and missed it again). Perhaps some way to make it more prominent... maybe list one normal workflow (all steps) and one alternative workflow (all steps with the non-standard dir). Show quoted text

Nod. Renaming the bug as this is the real remaining problem.

Basically, EUMM has to be upgraded before it can be loaded by Makefile.PL. It would maybe be possible to do a temporary local install of EUMM, then delay the real installs until later, but that sounds like a lot of complexity for not much gain. Show quoted text

I agree that the docs could be better. I'll take a look at this.
Thats old news
