johnguillory has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

After crying uncle on installing prerequisites I learned of cpan! However, it fails "make test". I'd appreciate any advice. I also tried "cpan -i CPAN" and that failed please see bottom. Thanks, John

    Your 2nd snippet, suggests that you first need to cpan -i IO::Zlib ... as, indeed, CPAN.pm is telling you in its error message.

      Thanks Bloodnok. I had to install manually the one you mention and CPAN-Test-Dummy....
        no probs johnguillory - any time I can, I will. If I can't I might profer an opinion, but no more :-)
