in reply to Problems Installing Modules

Have you checked to see if there exists a file at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi already? It really looks to me like the error is that it cannot create a directory where a file of the same name already exists.

While you're at it, have you looked at line 127 of /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/ExtUtils/ to see if it looks goofy in any way?

Finally, what happens if you try to do a forced install via CPAN? I'm with you in that I'd really like to know why the normal install fails before I try to force anything, but it is an option.

    You're totally right... I feel so stupid, because i was checking in:


    in which it does appear a folder called i386-multi.. etc., but not in:


    in which it appears a file called the same way, exactly as you said. I think you guys just found a bug in Perl in Mandrake 9.2.

    I just finished installing DBD::InterBase manually and works beautifully. THANKS A LOT!!!. =)

[marto]: yeah, this is at work, where some intranet app launches links via When users close the intranet page so that only the new JS opened windows exist, clicking URLs in an email (or whatever) don't open
[Corion]: marto: It somewhat makes sense that the reduced popup window doesn't get new URLs, but it makes less sense that no new browser window opens :)
[marto]: Corion, yeah, why no new browser window opens is currently beyond my understanding
[marto]: thanks
[Corion]: marto: Maybe it opens offscreen? I wouldn't know an easy way to confirm that, except maybe closing the chromeless window and then looking whether iexplore.exe is still running
