Re: Unable to install a particular CPAN module using CPAN

in reply to Unable to install a particular CPAN module using CPAN

It appears that fp was not indexed by PAUSE because it is owned by KARASIK and not STEVAN.

A grep of the 02packages.details.txt.gz file shows the following:

fp::functionals 0.02 S/ST/STEVAN/fp-0.03.tar.gz fp::lambda 0.01 S/ST/STEVAN/fp-0.03.tar.gz fp::lambda::utils 0.01 S/ST/STEVAN/fp-0.03.tar.gz

Installing fp::functionals should do the trick, except that it fails tests for me. You'll have to force install it.

    The following worked as root:
    perl -MCPAN -e shell
    force install fp::functionals
    Thanks to the people who helped!

    Sweet zombie Jesus, where did you find that fp is owned by me?! :o Not that I mind, but it's totally a surprise, it almost woke me up

      I did a peek at the permissions for fp on PAUSE.

      FWIW, I've noticed you have a large number of lowercase namespaces reserved (see the bottom of this list). A little bit of investigation leads to a guess that an upload of the Prima dist happened to index all of the examples, which had a number of namespaces used. Perhaps you could go in to PAUSE and give up primary maintenance status of the namespaces you don't need?

        Hm, right, yes. Here, I removed them. I've never applied for these namespaces in the first place, they somehow appeared automatically. Thanks for the find!
