in reply to PPM errors, wrong pool

Please always (in the least) post a `perl -v' dump. Also, a `perl -V' can't hurt (esp if you're having trouble with XS).

Now, I got ActivePerl 5.8 build 804 on Win2k

This is perl, v5.8.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

Binary build 804 provided by ActiveState Corp. http://www.ActiveState.com
Built 23:15:13 Dec  1 2002

I use PPM very often and have never encountered that particular problem. Chances are its most likely a problem with your build, rather than ppm specifically.

Also, the PPM shell has always sucked, and in such cases, you should always try to use PPM, for example

perl -MPPM -e"PPM::InstallPackage( package => 'http://crazyinsomniac.p +erlmonk.org/perl/ppm/5.8/Devel-Size.ppd');" #!/usr/bin/perl use PPM; my $pack = 'http://crazyinsomniac.perlmonk.org/perl/ppm/5.8/Devel-Size +.ppd'; PPM::InstallPackage( package => $pack );
Now, can you replicate the error you are seeing at will? How can I replicate it?


MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.

    Sorry to be so tardy with my reply ... I'm working 18/24 at the moment!

    My perl -v is EXACTLY the same as yours.

    I decided to try a fresh install so I:
    1.) Installed Perl (Same as above) on my other workstation (also W2k PRO)
    2.) Downloaded all the ActiveState 8xx .ppm modules & created a local repository (have to do that, the firewall doesn't like ppm)
    3.) Fired up PPM shell:
    3.a) search *
    3.b) install 1 - 2510
    4.) WAAAIIIITTTTEEEEDDDDD!
    5.) Received original error message right at end! Just once.
    6.) Tested ... modules seem to be installed fine!
    7.) Scratched head in puzzlement ... AGAIN!

    I do NOT get this problem on my Win98 system at home. Haven't tried the Redhat one.

    So Long
