|Subject:||Incorrect advice leads to critical perl installation destruction|
1. I'm running MSWin32-x86-multi-thread. 2. I start perl -MCPAN -e shell 3. It tells me I should upgrade, and it "should be seamless", however, after taking the advice and doing the upgrade, my perl installation is destroyed because Makemaker doesn't work on my platform anymore, and now everything else I do fails. 4. The BUG is that CPAN *ALREADY KNEW* that the "latest version" is not going to work on MSWin32-x86-multi-thread: all the tests for this platform always failed:So not only should I have NOT been asked to "Upgrade" nor told it was going to be "seamless" - I *should* have been TOLD *NOT* to upgrade for the time being, untill testing on my platform has succeeded!
