|Subject:||Use of uninitialized value / need a valid pathname in CPAN::FirstTime|
Using Amazon Linux AMI release 2018.03, when I try to install cpanm (via ansible, inside of a docker bash shell, yeah I know) I get the attached and below error. Interestingly it doesn't seem to be nearly as upset when I do the same thing via ansible's ssh commands instead of locally via the bash shell, so maybe the root cause is a null path somewhere? ``` Use of uninitialized value $_ in substitution (s///) at /usr/share/perl5/File/Basename.pm line 341. fileparse(): need a valid pathname at /usr/share/perl5/CPAN/FirstTime.pm line 1354. ``` FYI `cpan --version` outputs ``` /usr/bin/cpan version 1.57 calling Getopt::Std::getopts (version 1.07 [paranoid]), running under Perl version 5.16.3. ``` These are the packages installed immediately prior to trying to install cpanminus: - perl - perl-core - perl-libwww-perl - perl-CGI - perl-Time-Piece - perl-DBI - perl-DBD-MySQL - perl-CPAN - perl-Env - perl-Test-Fatal - gmp-devel - gcc I am going to try just using the perl-App-cpanminus package instead, but the error was such an oddball and my environment is so clean/reproducable I figured it's a good thing to report, because if I didn't have alternatives I'd really be stuck right now.
