Subject: can find 1.2 AlarmCall.pm in repository, not recognised by CPAN module
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1007b
Hi, I've tried getting this module with the CPAN installer module and it cannot get it. install Sys::AlarmCall installs the 1.1 module, not the 1.2 The 1.2 module is important because it has the Makefile.PL that is lacking in the 1.1 module, so you get the module in the right place otherwise the installer renames the file thusly SysAlarmCall.pm whereas it should be in the Sys/ directory as AlarmCall.pm seems a shame that the fix does not seem to be available. See this printout .. only the old 1.1 module is available. I managed to get it with install http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/A/AB/ABH/Sys-AlarmCall-1.2.tar.gz So I'm OK :-). But I suppose something is wrong that the CPAN installer cannot find it. Show quoted text

Hmmm, I've had another look - seems to be the mirror I was using which is Sheffield University. It works OK with another mirror. However, I had the problem immediatedly on using the CPAN installer and this is a new box, so I THEN (after the initial incorrect 1.1 download) set the repository to shef.ac.uk. So, the shef.ac.uk mirror seems to be old/wrong but also I can only suppose other mirror(s) because I only select shef.ac because I was having the problem. ****************************************************** Fetching with LWP: ftp://usit.shef.ac.uk/pub/packages/CPAN/modules/03modlist.data.gz Show quoted text
