in thread Bug in App::FatPacker?

I can't continue; the packlists file generated is empty.

I'm also getting BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/bin/fatpack line 3, <> line 42.

    I bet it's gotta do with the annoying stance of "we don't need no steenkin' packlists!" found among Debian/Ubuntu but also some other distro folks. They simply throw out all packlists before creating a DEB package, so naturally FatPacker (and a bunch of other stuff like Module::Installed) can't work.

    On Gentoo I have to deal with the same policy but at least it's easy to fix yourself as everything is installed from source. On Debianish systems I'm afraid your only solution is to forego the package manager and keep your own CPAN-installed and -updated module tree.

      ^Sounds believable, but IIRC I installed my modules from the CPAN console, not from .deb files.

      Anyway, where are the .packlist files supposed to be? I have no /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2/auto/Spreadsheet/WriteExcel/.packlist; in fact, this folder is empty.

      The modules seem to be installed in /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2, but all I can see there are the .pm files; there is no .packlist. Is that the problem?
