in reply to CPAN: Cannont install LWP::Protocol::https::Socket

Your wget test fails because you are sending an HTTP request to an HTTPS server. If you send an HTTPS request instead you may have more success.

It might also be significant whether you are attempting to connect over IPv4 or IPv6.

    This is resolved. Thank you! Bee

      If your box is running IPv4 and not IPv6 and you then attempt to connect from it over IPv6, that is when you see errors like "Network is unreachable". That and the fact that has an IPv6 address (as well as IPv4) suggests that this could be a possible cause of the test failure.

        This is resolved
        Thank you
      If you have indeed resolved this, you could help matters for us all by editing the OP to:

[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
