Subject: tar problems under armv5tejl-linux
CPAN v1.9205 has some problems with tar under armv5tejl-linux environment (WD World Edition Drive). Some modules cannot be unpacked with /bin/tar for no reason, while other works just fine. For example: == Correct builing == cpan[2]> install Test::Pod::Coverage Running install for module 'Test::Pod::Coverage' Running make for P/PE/PETDANCE/Test-Pod-Coverage-1.08.tar.gz Prepending /root/.cpan/build/FindBin-Real-1.05-9KwSc1/blib/arch /root/.cpan/build/FindBin-Real-1.05-9KwSc1/blib/lib to PERL5LIB for 'get' Prepending /root/.cpan/build/FindBin-Real-1.05-9KwSc1/blib/arch /root/.cpan/build/FindBin-Real-1.05-9KwSc1/blib/lib to PERL5LIB for 'make' CPAN.pm: Going to build P/PE/PETDANCE/Test-Pod-Coverage-1.08.tar.gz Writing Makefile for Test::Pod::Coverage (/usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL exited with 0) CPAN::Reporter: Makefile.PL result is 'pass', No errors. cp Coverage.pm blib/lib/Test/Pod/Coverage.pm (/usr/bin/make exited with 0) CPAN::Reporter: make result is 'pass', No errors.

Is it possible to try Archive::Tar if tar fails for some reason? -- Serguei Trouchelle
This may have improved in ANDK/CPAN-1.92_57.tar.gz. Would you try it out? At least, if it does not work with that version, then you can set o conf tar " " (note: set it to a space). This shall prevent that tar be used and will then try to use Archive::Tar. This mechanism was fixed recently.

Problems still exist, with different error messages (but I suppose that problem may be the same). Two files attached, first uses /bin/tar, second uses space instead of path.

Your second try was unsuccessful because the shell refused to retry because it never retries failing builds without some force. You would have to try fforce test DBD::SQLite This would guarantee that the shell tries building DBD::SQLite from scratch. In doubt this must be repeated for other failing packages.

It seems that the problem is somewhere inside default device's Perl. I've recompiled Perl from scratch and both tar and makefile problems went away with recent CPAN.pm. -- Serguei Trouchelle
Thanks for letting me know. I'll close the ticket. Feel free to reopen it if the problem reappears.

Hello Andreas. Sorry, but the problem reappears (log file is attached): sometimes, for some reason, it seems to use /bin/tar anyway -- even if "tar" and "gzip" is configured off. When I cleared build directory and ran "o conf" to prove "tar" is off and then "upgrade CPAN::Reporter" again, it was unwrapped with Archive::Tar successfully without problems. I took a look at the code and have no idea why this happens. Is it possible that it uses another perl installation's CPAN::Config? I have another perl in /usr/bin with "tar" and "gzip" on, I'll turn them off to see how this may affect local cpan. -- Serguei Trouchelle

Looked closer, and it seems to be a problem with different CPAN configs for different perls mixed up. So I think this issue can be closed, but I think it would be better to end-user to have explicit configuration parameter to take Archive::Tar/Gzip preference over binaries, because it's easy to overwrite space value with defaults on auto-configuration. -- Serguei Trouchelle
Nowadays we prefer Archive::Tar over external tar and gzip. Finally! Thanks!
