CPAN::Reporter: couldn't open history file '/root/.cpanreporter/reports- sent.db': No such file or directory ...note that there is no such directory /root/.cpanreporter. NOt sure whose job it is to create that directory, but I don't think it's mine.

It sounds like you were running CPAN as root and had CPAN::Reporter configured. Maybe we'll disable CPAN::Reporter in CPAN when running as root. -- David

In retrospect it looks like I failed to run the "init config" step. why not just detect that and fail gracefully? I don't see why CPAN::Report can't be used as root. On Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 14:51, David Golden via RT < bug-CPAN-Reporter@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
