MrNobo1024 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

When I try to install modules using, it ends up with something like this
GZIP: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error CPAN-1.62/ CPAN-1.62/t/ CPAN-1.62/t/vcmp.t /usr/bin/TAR: Skipping to next header /usr/bin/TAR: Error exit delayed from previous errors Removing previously used C:\perl\cpan\build\CPAN-1.62 Package seems to come without Makefile.PL. (The test -f "C:\perl\cpan\build\CPAN-1.62\Makefile.PL" returned fal +se.) Writing one on our own (setting NAME to unknown) Added to MANIFEST: MANIFEST Added to MANIFEST: Makefile.PL Added to MANIFEST: t/vcmp.t Couldn't find a Bundle file in C:\perl\cpan\build\CPAN-1.62 at C:/perl +/lib/ line 2018
It looks like the .tar.gz is corrupted but when I open it manually, it's fine. Can anyone help with this?

    How do you open it manually? Using winzip? Try with
    /usr/bin/TAR tvzf filename.tar.gz

      tar opens it OK also, it only has the problem when using CPAN.
        Delete tar tar.gz file and download it again from another mirror!
