Trying to install Moose using cpanm and local::lib. I got quite a ways into the Moose install and then hit this first error. On Ubuntu 10.10 with perl 5.10.1. I would be happy to rerun any tests you need (I can wipe out the local::lib and start again). $ perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi (with 40 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) from cpanm's build.log: ... --> Working on Parse::CPAN::Meta Fetching http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/D/DA/DAGOLDEN/Parse-CPAN-Meta-1.4404.tar.gz -> OK Unpacking Parse-CPAN-Meta-1.4404.tar.gz Entering Parse-CPAN-Meta-1.4404 Checking configure dependencies from META.yml Checking if you have ExtUtils::MakeMaker 0 ...

That failure indicates a problem with using the YAML module as an alternative backend. That's likely a bug in YAML that this test is picking up. What version of YAML do you have installed? If it's not the latest, please upgrade and try again. If it *is* the latest, please downgrade to an older version and see if you can get it passing. Thank you! -- David

Thanks for your reply, David!  I may not have time tonight to look at this, but I'll be able to look tomorrow. Show quoted text

David, I spent the last couple of days playing around with local::lib and cpanm.  The situation I reported to RT had to do with installing cpanm into an environment where an older version of YAML was already installed.  Due to the older version, a new version was not installed.  Then when Moose was installed after that, the issue I reported occurred. Another issue I found was with an environment where cpanm exists but its module dependencies do not (i.e. cpanm was copied from ~/perl5/bin/ after having been installed.  Cpanm still ran after that, but installing Moose with cpanm hit a different error. It looks like, after creating a new environment with local::lib, I have to install cpanm there in order to use cpanm subsequently.  Or at least stack environments, so that cpanm's dependencies have already been (virtually) installed in the newly-created local::lib environment.  So, it's not really possible to create a new, totally empty local::lib environment, if I'm planning to use cpanm to install into it.  This is due to the fact that at a minimum, I need cpanm's dependencies installed in order to use cpanm without error. Unfortunately, that means that all the App::cpanminus dependencies will leak through into every one of my local::lib environments and I won't be able to tell if those dependencies are only needed for running cpanm itself, or if they're dependencies of the target modules I'm installing. So, bottom line, when I create a local::lib environment and install App::cpanminus and then Moose into it, things work fine.  The problem I originally reported has to do with the way my local::lib environment was set up.  Do I need to do something to clean up the RT ticket I created? Thanks! (BTW, I also read your blog posts -- thanks for writing them!) -- John Show quoted text

I'll clean up the ticket, but on the cpanm front, it sounds to me like you're doing something non-standard in the way you're using local::lib or cpanm that is causing problems. First, if you download the standalone cpanm client, that should be relocatable and work with a fresh local::lib -- but they you have to be sure not to install App::cpanminus into it. E.g. download cpanm into ~/bin (assuming that's in your path) and then use it installing things into your local::lib. Personally, I now usually just use perlbrew to get an up-to-date standalone perl installation and avoid local::lib entirely (though perlbrew lets you use a local::lib with a perlbrew, too, which is kind of cool.) If you still have snags, jump onto #toolchain on irc.perl.org and ask around for help. -- David
