in reply to cpanm installs ExtUtils::MakeMaker again and again on FreeBSD
FreeBSD 10 . Virgin install . cpanminus seems unable to determine the version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker after repeated successful installs.
This comment just to associate the
cpanm --uninst-shadows ExtUtils::MakeMaker
as a solution to this problem that worked in my case if anyone else is searching. I had this problem with Poet.
The error post: cpanm --notest install MISC::PKG
==> Found dependencies: ExtUtils::MakeMaker
! Installing the dependencies failed: Missing version info for module 'ExtUtils::MakeMaker'
! Bailing out the installation for MISC::PKG
