You really shouldn't listen to this particular AnonymousMonk:-). I recommended a manual install because I prefer it to cpanp -z, and that's the way I do it. However, you should do it that way if it's easier for you.

    Yes, you do a lot of time-wasting-things routinely, and then you share with everyone, so others can waste time too

      Ah! You're not truly anonymous. You are making a good case for the abolition of Anonymous Monk. Why in the hell would you care what I do if you were truly anonymous?

        I care when seekers like HelenCr get poor advice from not-so-obvious-trolls, and you're almost as famous as sundialsvc4 in that regard

        "Ah! You're not truly anonymous. You are making a good case for the abolition of Anonymous Monk."

        I think you're missing the point totally. This has been discussed at least three times in recent history, most recently here. If people could not post anonymously, what's to stop them creating a throw away account and posting whatever they want from there? **

        "Why in the hell would you care what I do if you were truly anonymous?"

        So if someone doesn't have an account they have no right to respond/provide an alternate view point? I find that ridiculous. Perhaps you don't understand what the word anonymous means in this context.

        Update: ** And would this add any weight to their words if they did? To quote BrowserUKs sig: "Examine what is said, not who speaks"

        Update: fixed link

    Hi Khen1950fx, marto and AM, I've been working on some other stuff the last couple of days, but I'd like now to proceed with that installation.
    So, should I do it in the following way:
    1. Uninstall Wx
    2. Uninstall Alien::wxWidgets
    3. Reinstall manually (after extraction) Alien::wxWidgets --wxWidgets-version=2.9.4 (v 0.64)
    4. Reinstall Wx (v 0.9922)
    or should I just reinstall manually (after extraction) Alien::wxWidgets --wxWidgets-version=2.9.4 (v 0.64) on top of the existing installation, without doing the uninstalls first?

    Many TIA - Helen

      Be careful of uninstallation. I wouldn't recommend it. What I would do is:
      perl Build.PL wxWidgets-version=2.9.4
      I use CPAN. Did you know that you can configure CPAN to uninstall for you? It'll uninstall conflicting files, but don't use it if you use INSTALL_BASE. Enter the CPAN shell:
      cpan> o conf init mbuild_install_arg cpan> --uninst 1 cpan> o conf commit
      Check that the change took effect:
      cpan> o conf mbuild_install_arg mbuild_install_arg [--uninst 1]
      Now do
      cpan> o conf init make_install_arg cpan> UNINST=1 cpan> o conf commit cpan> o conf make_install_arg make_install_arg [UNINST=1]
      It worked. You're done. Now install Wx.

      Update: Revised

        Thank you, Khen1950fx.

        I will try the entire process, and report back.

        Many thanks - Helen
