Perl cpan problems

I posted this in the server networking section as well.

I am trying to install perl modules using cpan, and am getting the following output.

Anythoughts?

It seems that the perl makefile is not right, but what do I do to fix it?


Kind regards

Re: Perl cpan problems

maybe tell us what module you are trying to compile? also you could request or make a package of this module. likely the makefile needs to be patched in order to pass the correct path for make (which i assume may not be /usr/bin/make but bin/make)

Re: Perl cpan problems

It is all modules.

However. found the problem.

DOH

Wrong date on the server, now set.

Works fine now.

I'll go hide and hang my head in shame.
