good chemistry is complicated,
and a little bit messy -LW
I'm having some problems with CPAN. I haven't used CPAN in 3-4 months on the Linux server in question. Previously things were working fine, now when I tried to add a module CPAN is failing.
There might have been a tweak or two made to the server. (I'm not the server administrator, I just have sudo access to run CPAN and a few other things.) But the maintainers are pretty good about notifying me of changes.
And to further confuse things, I upgraded CPAN from 2.28 to 2.29 when CPAN let me know there was a new version available. I really don't think that's the problem - I'm just throwing that out there for completeness. It's something that has changed since the last time it was working correctly.
This is a pretty good example of what I'm experiencing.
I execute CPAN like so: sudo /opt/canvas/perl/bin/cpan. It runs as root as it always has. I'm using ftp://cpan.cs.utah.edu/CPAN/ as my mirror.
Upgrading a simple and straight forward module like Data::Dumper:
I've got installed, so let's move on to a GET.
The file for Data::Dumper correctly is downloaded were it should be (with a fresh timestamp): /root/.cpan/sources/authors/id/N/NW/NWCLARK/Data-Dumper-2.183.tar.gz.
The permissions on /tmp are correct, and I'm running as root via sudo.
That feels like a PGP/GPG error to me, but I'm guessing on that point.
Thoughts? Questions? Suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
