modules. When I do a find file command they all come up. The problem
is, they are not listed in @INC. I checked the putty log file a
little bit more thoroughly and found that the problem reduces to
All the .pm files are actually somewhere in the .cpan directory in
different directories. Only not where @INC has them listed.
Can I not simply add them to @INC somehow? Or symlink them so that
Perl can find them?
- Finally it's done!
Please disregard my last two messages about fixing an issue with
@INC. That was not the problem.
I was not able to install Perl 5 complete with CPAN under Unslung
unless I had done all these:
# ipkg update
# ipkg install unslung-feeds
# ipkg install perl
# ipkg install gzip
# ipkg install tar
# ipkg install unslung-devel
# ipkg install which
# ipkg install expat
# ipkg install zlib
# ipkg install wget
# ipkg install libgcc
There were some packages like gzip that needed to be installed even
though they appeared to be there already. Also I had to install some
packages twice, don't aks me why, before they would function
properly. I checked this by
# ipkg list_installed <something>
until there were no more error messages. After that I was able to
cpan> install Bundle::CPAN
which took several hours but works fine now. Unfortunately I can't
tell, to which degree the things I've done before installing and re-
installing all the necessary packages, added to this outcome (like
symlinking some targets, etc). I have the impression, that I should
have installed everything in the first place.
Thanks a lot to Robert Hammond who's comments were enormously helpful!
