Subject: Module::Build configuration continues and continues
I did an "install Bundle::CPAN". The next time I've run 'cpan' it asked: Sorry, we have to rerun the configuration dialog for CPAN.pm due to the following indispensable but missing parameters: mbuild_arg, mbuild_install_arg, mbuild_install_build_command, mbuildpl_arg The next questions deal with Module::Build support. [...] I answered all the questions and exit the shell. Next time I use 'cpan' I had to answer the same questions. And so on. TIA ambs

Maybe you overlooked the sentence Please remember to call 'o conf commit' to make the config permanent! ? -- andreas

Heh. Do you think people read all the text? People just press ENTER until a shell appears :) Sorry for the bug report.

No, THANKS for the bug report. I will at least make it better visible when somebody changes the config and leaves CPAN.pm without saving it. I did have it on my Todo list but now it has a number added:) -- andreas
Fixed in the 1.88_xx track Thanks again for the report
