in reply to To install a module...

PPM is probably easier, but who likes change, good ol' make on linux for me...i tried to use the CPAN.pm once a while back, it was like 4 in the morning, i was half asleep, and whatever i did, it starting installing perl...on a P266 that takes quite a while, and at 4 in the morning i wasnt too happy, so i'll probably stick with make, its more fun anyway :-p

    Older versions of the CPAN module will do that. Fetch a fresh CPAN.pm tarball and install it manually, then you'll be able to use the CPAN shell from there on without it pigheadedly insisting on upgrading your Perl.

    I was bit by that too. I believe that problem was fixed, or at least it will prompt.
