Subject: CPAN::PERL5LIB problems
I have again endless loops pretty fast in all my smokers (5.6.2, 5.8.8, 5.10.0) with CPAN.pm 1.9258. It could be the CPAN::PERL5LIB feature which is causing this. All the smokers are stuck with 12 or 13 build dirs. Additionaly, I see that the temporary files holding the perl5inc are apparently empty on my system: $ ls -altr /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_* -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:21 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_OKGU.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:21 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_C9ZD.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:22 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_4AyP.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:23 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_ZDXj.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:24 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_jVL7.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:24 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_ZqPn.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:33 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_zXtr.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:38 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_oyUm.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:38 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_iTlW.txt -rw------- 1 cpansand wheel 0 Mar 14 20:38 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_Wdi1.txt So this seems to be some flushing issue or so. Looking with lsof at one of the files: $ lsof /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_zXtr.txt COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME perl5.8.8 14625 cpansand 6uW VREG 0,128 0 40 /tmp/cpan_perl5inc_zXtr.txt Regards, Slaven
fixed in upcoming 1.92_59 and in SVN. Please reopen if there are doubts.
