Re^3: Unable to enable - trying to add repositories to PPM (ActivePerl 5.12)

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

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

      Did the bribes repo actually get added ? Running ppm repo should give you a list of all enabled repos.

      When you first added the bribes repo did the packlist get downloaded, and was the bribes database updated (as happened for me) ?
      Bribes is still down, btw. It could be that's all that's posing a problem for you.

        Bribes is added, ppm repo lists it as enabled, with 0 packages. I'm pretty sure it's not their server because I had the same thing happen with the trouchelle repository, but I'll keep experimenting.
        Update: I tried adding the trouchelle repo with ppm rep add trouchelle.com http://trouchelle.com/ppm12/
        No error message, everything seemed fine, but again, 0 packages shown both in the ppm gui and by the ppm repo command, and and no HTML::Strip in the module list.

        I can't think of anything I may be doing wrong, and I can't believe two major repositories are down/misconfigured.
