in reply to Unable to enable - trying to add repositories to PPM (ActivePerl 5.12)

Here's how I just added the bribes repo to my list on ActivePerl build 1202 (5.12.2):

C:\_32>ppm repo add http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done Downloading www.bribes.org packlist...done Updating www.bribes.org database...done Repo 2 added. C:\_32>
Maybe you need to include the 'www.' in the url.

Cheers,
Rob

    Thanks for the detailed advice. I copy-pasted your command into the console. Got no error message, "Repo 2 added" - everything seems fine.
    But in PPM, I see this:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/lofarkas/5183303392/
    0 packages as you can see, and HTML::Strip is still not in the module list.
      and HTML::Strip is still not in the module list

      Odd - I get:
      C:\_32>ppm search HTML-Strip 1: HTML-Strip Perl extension for stripping HTML markup from text. Version: 1.06 Author: Alex Bowley (kilinrax@cpan.org) Repo: www.bribes.org CPAN: http://search.cpan.org/dist/HTML-Strip-1.06/ C:\_32>
      What does the same command return for you ?

      As I write this, however, the bribes repo appears to be unreachable.
      Even ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/HTML-Strip.ppd (which doesn't even need bribes on the repo list) hangs.
      I'm not sure how long it has been like this ... or for how long these conditions will last. I'll send the owner of the repo a message, just in case he's unaware of this.

      Cheers,
      Rob
