I am running redhat 64 "#1 SMP Wed Dec 17 11:41:38 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"
installing the IO compress module 2.023.. I cannot install or force install from cpan..
after i "look io:compress:base" and go into the directory for a manual make/make test/make install
the "make" and "make test" are golden.. "make install" fails with "Makefile:89: *** Recursive variable `INSTALLARCHLIB' references itself (eventually).  Stop."

the Make file has this for line 89: "INSTALLARCHLIB = $(INSTALLARCHLIB)"

I looked at another module "par dist" and found the line is different:
"INSTALLARCHLIB = $(PERLPREFIX)/lib/perl5/5.10.1/x86_64-linux".

I changed the line in io compress to this and it works..

I installed perl 5.10.1 from scratch if this makes a difference..

Joe





Hi Joe - can you send me details of the exact RedHat distribution you are running please? I assume you used the version of Perl that came with RedHat? If not, can you send the output from running perl -V please?

Hello there. I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.2 here using MacPorts Perl 5.10.1 and I'm getting the same error: Makefile:89: *** Recursive variable `INSTALLARCHLIB' references itself (eventually). Stop. PMQS/IO-Compress-2.024.tar.gz /usr/bin/make install -j2 -- NOT OK I've attached my perl configuration. Perl modules I get from CPAN are all installed in $HOME/local.

Whoops... forgot. Just in case you need it, here's my CPAN configuration file.
