I'd advise making sure that you can build and install modules manually before using CPAN.pm. Try going thru the following steps:

  • Download the gzip file for a module that you want from CPAN. Initially go for a pure-Perl module like the latest version of CGI.pm.
  • Unzip and untar the file.
  • Run thru the standard installation steps investigating any errors that you see:
    • perl Makefile.PL
    • make
    • make test
    • make install
  • Having successfully installed a pure Perl module, try it again with a XS-based module like HTML::Parser.
  • Once you've successfully built both types of module, try them again using CPAN.pm.
