in thread trouble installing Device::USB

Inline::MakeMaker should be installed by the Inline package as I recall.

The Device::USB dependencies include Inline::C which should have installed Inline::MakeMaker. I would try the following:

  1. Check to see if Inline is installed.
  2. Check to see if Inline::MakeMaker is installed.

I suspect that Inline failed to install somehow. But that is just a guess.

    Thanks. I think we are on to something here. But, I'm still not getting there.

    In response to:
    #perl -MCPAN -e shell
    cpan> install Inline::MakeMaker
    I get:
    Inline::MakeMaker is up to date (6.17)

    In response to:
    #perl -MCPAN -e shell > x.txt 2>&1
    cpan> install Inline
    I get:
    This seems to say that a url list that I didn't know about before must be set up for CPAN to operate. My next two actions follow the instructions given in the error report above.

    In response to:
    cpan> o conf init urllist
    I get two blank line feeds and a cpan> prompt. Thus, I think that the computer is saying that it is happy with this.

    In response to:
    cpan o conf init connect_to_internet_ok urllist
    I get two blank line feeds and a cpan> prompt. Thus, I again think that the computer is saying that it is happy with this.

    When I once again try:
    #perl -MCPAN -e shell > x.txt 2>&1
    cpan> install Device::USB
    I get: I ran through all of this several times as I was making notes and composing this posting. It took several passes before both of the "o conf" commands for urllist came back as successful. That makes me a little uneasy.

    In the above error posting the following:
    Warning: No success on command/usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=site
      /usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=site -- NOT OK
    seems to be upset with a INSTALLDIRS variable or setting of some kind. I don't know what this is.

    Still confused. Thanks for the help so far. Any additional suggestions would be appreciated.


      Inline::MakeMaker is up to date (6.17)

      I don't do automated installs and I don't know what that's supposed to tell you. It suggests to me that you already have version 6.17 of Inline::MakeMaker, which is just brilliant, given that the current version is still at 0.44 !!

      You could try (from the CPAN shell) install Inline instead of install Inline::MakeMaker and see if that makes a difference. Or you could install Inline using the same manual procedure that you used with Device::USB.

      Inline::MakeMaker is up to date (6.17)

      Unsuprising, because you manually copied into Inline directory. Inline::MakeMaker is only at version 0.44

      force install Inline
