Subject: Broken install: installdir fixed to /usr/local/share
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1006b
When installation is run with the CPAN shell, PPI tries to install itself to /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.7. However this is not my CPAN install directory. See also the same problem with distribution Test-Subcalls-0.02. I have never encountered a such problem with packages from other authors. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Running make for A/AD/ADAMK/PPI-1.103.tar.gz Is already unwrapped into directory /home/dolmen/.cpan/build/PPI-1.103 CPAN.pm: Going to build A/AD/ADAMK/PPI-1.103.tar.gz /usr/bin/perl -Iinc Makefile.PL --config= --installdeps=Clone,0.17,List::MoreUtils,0.04,Params::Util,0.05,IO::Scalar,2.105,Storable,2.14 *** Installing dependencies... *** You are not allowed to write to the directory '/usr/local/share/perl/5.8.7'; the installation may fail due to insufficient permissions. ==> Should we try to re-execute the autoinstall process with 'sudo'?

Again, this is NOT a problem with these modules. This is most likely a problem with an interaction between your installer and Module::Install, and you will have this problem with any package by any author that uses Module::Install. Adam K Guest via RT wrote: Show quoted text

You are right. The issue seems to be in Module::Install. I'll try to resolve this issue with its author. Olivier Mengué.
