    I install modules in my local directory, without any problem .
    This problem only occurs after I try to install perl-5.15.4.
    sudo only applies if I have root access.

      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!
