CPAN fix for perl for optware
- I have optware on my router with 32mb and I got perl but the module I wanted wasn't available via ipkg so I went to use CPAN to find it wouldn't work...
Even if I did configure it correctly (i'm 99% sure i did since i had expert help) it would have taken days to do anything as using swap made it slooooooow) I started off with this site http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/ConfigureCPAN and that didn't cut it.
I moved over to using cpanm - https://github.com/miyagawa/cpanminus
but that gave an error so i did this
https://github.com/shadowcat-mst/cpanminus/commit/9eba7dd0af9e63a4cadde8b0f5483a43a5e63deb **** credit goes to wtf911(myself) and mst*****
With that cpanm works good and you just need the proper ipkgs prior to using it...
i can't say what if all of these you need:
but on top of those you want:
at that point you want to have this file: https://raw.github.com/miyagawa/cpanminus/master/cpanm
downloaded somewhere accesible
to use it: perl cpanm [option] [module]
and there you have simpler, faster, and working cpan and installing modules for perl on optware!
again credit to wtf911 and mst :D
i advise changing this page:http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/ConfigureCPAN
