Actually, the Repository _may_ be the problem. Does the repository point to a valid 5.8 location, or does it point to a 5.6 repository? Does the repository have a DBI package for 5.8? Type rep then rep desc at a ppm prompt. Mine looks like this:

ppm> rep desc 2 Describing Active Repository 2: Name: ActiveState Package Repository Location: http://ppm.ActiveState.com/PPM/ppmserver-5.8-windows.plex?urn:/PPM/Ser +ver/SQL Type: PPMServer 3.0

If it does point to a 5.6 repository, see DigitalKitty's post above to point it to a valid 5.8 repository.

BTW, the target looks fine, except for the extra 'v' in ActivePerl (which won't make any difference).

[atcroft]: stevieb: I have berrybrew installed on a Win machine, and I noticed that with perlbrew you can "upgrade" a particular installed version... any chance of doing something similar in the
[atcroft]: future with berrybrew?
[atcroft]: stevieb: Also, one other odd question... is it possible to set it up so that all the versions installed can use a single directory that they pull module sources into, rather than duplicating files? (Am I making sense, or do I have too high a CBC
[atcroft]: (caffeine-blood content) atm?)
[atcroft]: .oO(Interesting... I just went to http://blogs.perl. org/, did a search for "Mars", and tried to go to the second page of results, and received instead a "Request-URI Too Large" message.... odd.)
