in thread Move Perl modules to new CentOS VPS
a) distribution's Perl installation should not really be messed around with. If needed just install an alternative version of Perl for use by my Perl apps.
b) Use CPAN's autobundle to "create" the installed module list. Then use perlbrew on the new server to re-install based on what's on the old server. Perhaps using perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::Snapshot'
But... What about external libraries used by the various Perl modules such as GD with the libjpeg, libpng etc? Do these libraries have to be installed fresh on the new server? Is there a good way to at least get a list of such external dependencies?
