CPAN: Term::ANSIColor loaded ok (v1.10) CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9708) CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.16) Going to read /usr/local/src/CPAN/Metadata Database was generated on Thu, 13 Mar 2008 20:32:28 GMT You are visiting the local directory '/.' without lock, take care that concurrent processes do not do likewise. CPAN: YAML::Syck loaded ok (v1.04) CPAN: CPAN::Kwalify loaded ok (v5.401418) CPAN: Kwalify loaded ok (v1.14) Running make for /. Package seems to come without Makefile.PL. (The test -f "/Makefile.PL" returned false.) Writing one on our own (setting NAME to unknown) Could not open >/Makefile.PL: Permission denied at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/CPAN.pm line 3536 Exitcode 13 (Yes, from looking at the truss output it really tries to write to the root directory) Regards, Slaven
Fixed in SVN. It was broken during the speedup of find_perl.
