Subject: CPAN dies on NCSU mirror
When trying to load the index from the NCSU mirror (ftp://ftp.ncsu.edu/pub/mirror/CPAN), CPAN crashes with the following error: Fetching with LWP: ftp://ftp.ncsu.edu/pub/mirror/CPAN/authors/id/D/DA/DANIEL/MP3-Info-1.21.tar.gz prompt function called without an argument at /usr/share/perl/5.8/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm line 137 This mirror had been working fine a couple weeks ago. I've never seen a bad mirror cause CPAN to crash. William
Sorry that I didn't answer earlier... When I try to reproduce now, I cannot, so I must close as Works-For-Me. Please reopen if you can reproduce and try to provide more details about versions and commands. Thanks,
