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

I am trying to install Module-Build-0.4002.

It says something about conflicting versions. I have only one version of Perl on this box. Any ideas ?

    # Failed test ' with conflicting versions reported' # at t/metadata.t line 278. # '' # doesn't match '(?-xism:already declared)'

    Looks to me like it was expecting a value that was undefined. I also see lots of references to "uninitialized value in length at /opt/perltemp/Module-Build-0.4002/blib/lib/Module/Build/Base.pm line 2767."

    If I was you, I'd look at that Base.pm file at line 2767 and find out what it's expecting that it's not getting.

      I checked 'Base.PM' and 'metadata.t' file. Didn't find anything out of the ordinary. As a temporary fix, i forced the install using this command -
      perl -MCPAN -e "CPAN::Shell->force(qw(install Module::Build));"
      But i will go back to 'Base.PM' and get more info later.

    I wonder if you would have a different outcome if you tried to install with:

    perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install

    The error you are seeing from t/metadata.t may relate to Module::Metadata. I am running Strawberry Perl 5.12.3.0 on Windows. After a fresh install of Strawberry Perl, Module::Build installs successfully but after installing Module::Metadata from CPAN, I get the same errors as you on test t/metadata.t

    Strawberry Perl 5.12.3.0 provides Module::Metadata version 1.000004 and CPAN provides version 1.000011.

    Some Tests fail.

    Ignore it!
