Subject: ignores urllist config unless LWP is used
Installing modules after a fresh Perl 5.8.8 install: - CPAN 1.76 correctly selects the first URL from my urllist - CPAN 1.87 (after install Bundle::CPAN) always selects ftp://ftp.perl.org/..., using Net::FTP this URL does not exist in my config. CPAN 1.84 is the first version to exhibit this behaviour, 1.83 does it correctly. After installation of LWP, CPAN uses the correct URL again. OS: SuSE9.1, perl 5.8.8 The CPAN config file below is from ~/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm (root), but it is the same when it is configured systemwide. # This is CPAN.pm's systemwide configuration file. This file provides # defaults for users, and the values can be changed in a per-user # configuration file. The user-config file is being looked for as # ~/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm. $CPAN::Config = { 'build_cache' => q[50], 'build_dir' => q[/root/.cpanlocal/build], 'bzip2' => q[/usr/bin/bzip2], 'cache_metadata' => q[1], 'cpan_home' => q[/root/.cpanlocal], 'curl' => q[], 'ftp' => q[/usr/bin/ftp], 'ftp_proxy' => q[http://10.110.110.2:3128/], 'getcwd' => q[cwd], 'gpg' => q[/usr/bin/gpg], 'gzip' => q[/bin/gzip], 'histfile' => q[/root/.cpanlocal/histfile], 'histsize' => q[100], 'http_proxy' => q[http://10.110.110.2:3128/], 'inactivity_timeout' => q[0], 'index_expire' => q[1], 'inhibit_startup_message' => q[0], 'keep_source_where' => q[/root/.cpanlocal/sources], 'lynx' => q[/usr/bin/lynx], 'make' => q[/usr/bin/make], 'make_arg' => q[], 'make_install_arg' => q[], 'make_install_make_command' => q[/usr/bin/make], 'makepl_arg' => q[], 'mbuild_arg' => q[], 'mbuild_install_arg' => q[], 'mbuild_install_build_command' => q[./Build], 'mbuildpl_arg' => q[], 'ncftp' => q[], 'ncftpget' => q[], 'no_proxy' => q[localhost], 'pager' => q[less], 'prefer_installer' => q[EUMM], 'prerequisites_policy' => q[follow], 'proxy_user' => q[], 'scan_cache' => q[atstart], 'shell' => q[/bin/bash], 'show_upload_date' => q[0], 'tar' => q[/bin/tar], 'term_is_latin' => q[1], 'unzip' => q[/usr/bin/unzip], 'urllist' => [q[http://www.planet-elektronik.de/CPAN/], q[http://www.mirrorspace.org/cpan/]], 'wget' => q[], }; 1; __END__
Thanks for the report. This should be fixed in 1.87_63 which I just uploaded to CPAN.
