I wrote a howto on setting up a custom module directory a while ago. Also have a look at Life with CPAN

    Dear Perl Monks,

    Thank you very much for your timely reply.

    This is turning out to be much harder than I thought! I followed the directions given at:

    After this I go to the CPAN shell and said "install LWP" and at the very end I get an error (below). What am I missing?

    Failed 27/37 test scripts, 27.03% okay. 205/532 subtests failed, 61.47% okay. make: *** test Error 2 /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK Running make install make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
    ============END OF ERROR============


      Any thoughts on this? I have spent a lot of time on this seemingly trivial issue, with no success :(

      Thanks again.

        Anonymous monk said "force install LWP".

        Thank you very much ! That solved my problem. What a relief. Phew !

    OK so now I have another question :)

    I am in fact going to have to be using a network of computers for running my experiments (and I do not have root on any of them). I don't want to go around installing Perl Modules on every single one of them. What is an efficient way of doing it?

    Thanks yet again.

        OK, playing with it still. Thanks much.

[marto]: they already have an entire BMC patrol system, which they disabled, because it was sending out spurious messages. So rather than fix the issue, or even find out what it was, they turned it off. No messages, can't be any problems, right?
[Corion]: marto: But having open tickets / incidents increases the pressure on them ;) Of course, likely your contract / SLA specifies an upper limit for the number of incidents :-D
[Corion]: marto: Ow ...
[marto]: Corion They don't get into trouble for the number of tickets, or even breached tickets they have
[marto]: which is a core issue with the client
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I can imagine that
[choroba]: create a ticket if the number of tickets reaches a limit
[choroba]: how deep meta could it go?
