Re^2: CPAN ask me install a package repeatly
in thread CPAN ask me install a package repeatly
Have you tried running the command w/ sudo?
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install File::Basename'
I'm fairly ignorant as to what's really happening when I install a module via MCPAN, but in my experience it seems that some modules require root to install properly...but let me know if this is a misconception on my part!
