in reply to difficulty using CPAN.pm

Well, I've never had problems with downloading and installing modules from CPAN as long as I was root and had all the other prerequisites.

You yould try to manually (instead of using CPAN) install a module, that is, download the module file, unzip and untar it and then try to install it...

The error message you are getting means that /usr/bin/make does not exist or is not executable. This is weird because Linux systems should have a working make utility and you even have a make program in /usr/bin. What you could try would be which make to see which make the shell thinks you want ... If this make is not /usr/bin/make then that's maybe one of the problems you have.

Somehow I get the feeling that make itself is failing ... Please try manually installing a module by running perl Makefile.pl and after that make in the same directory - if that works, then the problem is with your setup. If that dosen't work either, the problem is somewhere else :-(
