Stoney2005 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Oh wonderful and all knowing Monks... I seek your help in my unfortunate despair. Portaudio wont install from cpan. $ sudo cpan Audio::PortAudio
chmod 755 blib/arch/auto/Audio/PortAudio/ cp blib/arch/auto/Audio/PortAudio/ chmod 644 blib/arch/auto/Audio/PortAudio/ Manifying blib/man3/Audio::PortAudio.3pm JDIEPEN/Audio-PortAudio-0.03.tar.gz /usr/bin/make -- OK Running make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_h +arness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/01basic.t .. 1/3 No device found at t/01basic.t line 14. # Looks like your test exited with 255 just after 3. t/01basic.t .. Dubious, test returned 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00) All 3 subtests passed
I've got the portaudio libs installed. I use pulseaudio which might be causing issues. but I'm looking for how to resolve this issue so it will install or a module for me to capture audio input that is avaliable on windows and linux. the broken part from t/01basic.t is my $device  = $api->default_output_device;

    I had the same problem until I did
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
      Thanks. I tried that but no such luck. :( did that as both normal user and root. followed each of those by trying to install the module. UPDATE: I went ahead and forced it to install. Portaudio says i dont have any host_apis. yay. lol. now to figure out why.
