I am not sure whether this problem is caused by CPAN::Reporter or CPAN. I tried to install the module Gtk2::Ex::PodViewer. The output around the test process looked like this: CPAN: CPAN::Reporter loaded ok No tests defined for Gtk2::Ex::PodViewer extension. Preparing a test report for Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.17 Do you want to CC the the module author? (yes/no) [no] Do you want to edit the test report? (yes/no) [no] Do you want to send the test report? (yes/no) [yes] no Test report not sent /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK Running make install make test had returned bad status, won't install without force First thing: shouldn't CPAN::Reporter or CPAN recognize that there are no tests and refuse to send a test report? Second: I said "no" to the question whether to send the report. Maybe this is the reason why the "make test" part is considered a failure. If I turn CPAN::Reporter off (using o conf test_report 0) then make test and install works OK. Regards, Slaven
