Subject: CPAN local installation directory ignored
Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2013 12:16:11 +1000
To: <bug-Math-Symbolic@rt.cpan.org>
From: Josh Milthorpe <josh.milthorpe@anu.edu.au>
Hi, I was unable to install Math::Symbolic to a local directory using CPAN. I have set a local module install directory using cpan[1]> o conf makepl_arg INSTALL_BASE=/short/y42/perl cpan[1] > o conf mbuildpl_arg '--install_base /mydir/perl' cpan[1] > o conf commit which works fine for installing other modules. However, the installation for Math::Symbolic seems to just be ignoring that and trying to install system-wide. The error is as follows: cpan[1]> install Math::Symbolic ... All tests successful. Files=52, Tests=1129, 222 wallclock secs ( 0.36 usr 0.11 sys + 76.53 cusr 39.77 csys = 116.77 CPU) Result: PASS LEONT/Module-Build-0.4007.tar.gz ./Build test -- OK Running Build install Prepending ~/.cpan/build/Module-Build-0.4007-OXuPVs/blib/arch ~/.cpan/build/Module-Build-0.4007-OXuPVs/blib/lib to PERL5LIB for 'install' Building Module-Build !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Failed during this command: LEONT/Module-Build-0.4007.tar.gz : install NO $ perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for x86_64-linux Could you please look into why the standard CPAN local installation approach doesn't work here? Many thanks, Josh
