Subject: allow Date::Parse to be installed also as non-root
Download (untitled) / with headers

When doing perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Date::Parse"' I get: <<Running make install Warning: You do not have permissions to install into /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5. 8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 84. mkdir /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Time: Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/5 .8.0/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 137 make: *** [pure_site_install] Error 255 /usr/bin/make install -- NOT OK You may have to su to root to install the package>> This prevents me from installing bugzilla :( --> http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207039

This is not a bug in TimeDate. TimeDate is no different to any other perl distribution in this respect. If you want to install it without root then you need to tell it where to install it, by default all Makefile.PL's will install in the perl's site_lib The MakeMaker docs should be able to help with that Graham.
