CPAN-Meta and ExtUtils-MakeMaker Conflict?by jgamble (Pilgrim)
|on Aug 03, 2011 at 19:39 UTC||Need Help??|
jgamble has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I got around to updating ExtUtils-MakeMaker v6.58 via Activestate's PPM. Unfortunately, PPM claims there is a problem:
Synchronizing Database ... done
ExtUtils-MakeMaker marked for install
Installing package ...
Downloading ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.58 ... done
Unpacking ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.58 ... done
Generating HTML for ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.58 ... done
Updating files in site area ... failed
Installing package failed
ERROR: File conflict for 'C:/Perl64/html/site/lib/CPAN/Meta/Converter.html'.
The package CPAN-Meta has already installed a file that package ExtUtils-MakeMaker
wants to install.
I'm a little confused. Looking at ExtUtils-MakeMaker on CPAN, I don't see any CPAN-Meta-Converter module, so why does PPM think one is being installed?
I presume this will require fixing by hand? What's recommended? Should I uninstall this version of ActivePerl and install another version?
This is using PPM version 3.11; ActivePerl version 188.8.131.523.
