in thread Need help installing wxWidgets 2.9.4

Hi Khen1950fx, marto and AM, I've been working on some other stuff the last couple of days, but I'd like now to proceed with that installation.
So, should I do it in the following way:
  1. Uninstall Wx
  2. Uninstall Alien::wxWidgets
  3. Reinstall manually (after extraction) Alien::wxWidgets --wxWidgets-version=2.9.4 (v 0.64)
  4. Reinstall Wx (v 0.9922)
or should I just reinstall manually (after extraction) Alien::wxWidgets --wxWidgets-version=2.9.4 (v 0.64) on top of the existing installation, without doing the uninstalls first?

Many TIA - Helen

    Be careful of uninstallation. I wouldn't recommend it. What I would do is:
    perl Build.PL wxWidgets-version=2.9.4
    I use CPAN. Did you know that you can configure CPAN to uninstall for you? It'll uninstall conflicting files, but don't use it if you use INSTALL_BASE. Enter the CPAN shell:
    cpan> o conf init mbuild_install_arg cpan> --uninst 1 cpan> o conf commit
    Check that the change took effect:
    cpan> o conf mbuild_install_arg mbuild_install_arg [--uninst 1]
    Now do
    cpan> o conf init make_install_arg cpan> UNINST=1 cpan> o conf commit cpan> o conf make_install_arg make_install_arg [UNINST=1]
    It worked. You're done. Now install Wx.

    Update: Revised

      Thank you, Khen1950fx.

      I will try the entire process, and report back.

      Many thanks - Helen
