in reply to help managing modules using

This is an issue that was recently discussed in yast vs cpan in which I offered this comment.

I actually use Debian, too (unstable x86-64, aka etch), but the comments in that node are relevant to any distro. I'll reiterate only a little bit here: Have a completely separate development space. Let Debian do its own thing with regards to modules and you keep your own compiled perl and CPAN'd modules somewhere saparate (your ~/ maybe?).

    Ah... that sounds like a very good idea. Thank you. I could then keep a log of of every module installed, so that the installation could be easily reproduced if necessary (either on other machines, or if I somehow manage to befoul this one and need to replace it).

    (your ~/ maybe?)

    Actually, I tend to put bigger stuff like this into their very own /opt/foo directory, with the source tucked away in /opt/src. This has a nice side-effect of making uninstallion a snap (well, a "cd /opt; rm -fr foo" anyway :) ).
