Well, I've never had problems with downloading and installing
modules from CPAN as long as I was root and had all the
You yould try to manually (instead of using CPAN) install
a module, that is, download the module file, unzip and untar
it and then try to install it...
The error message you are getting means that /usr/bin/make
does not exist or is not executable. This is weird because
Linux systems should have a working make utility
and you even have a make program in /usr/bin. What you
could try would be which make to see which make
the shell thinks you want ... If this make is not
/usr/bin/make then that's maybe one of the problems you have.
Somehow I get the feeling that make itself
is failing ... Please try manually installing a module by
running perl Makefile.pl and after that make
in the same directory - if that works, then the problem is
with your setup. If that dosen't work either, the problem is
somewhere else :-(
