nasty problems with CPAN.pm and OpenBSD2.9by coolmichael (Deacon)
|on Sep 18, 2001 at 00:41 UTC||Need Help??|
coolmichael has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
The machine I was just using was a Pentium133 with 80Megs ram. I was running OpenBSD2.9, which was freshly installed, and Perl V5.6.0 with whatever version of CPAN.pm that ships with it. I was trying to install DBD::CSV, when the badness started:
the ddb> acted like a shell prompt, but would only respond with command not found to anything I typed. (I tried exit, quit, halt...)
The machine is rebooting now. Can anyone decipher that mess? Is there anything I can do to prevent it? It may have been some sort of hardware error, it is an old computer that once had a soya sauce packet dropped inside it.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
