Hola Monkly Ones,
I've been struggling with this all day and now I must ask for your help...
The Victim:Mac OS X 10.4.1
I thought I was only having trouble starting Catalyst so I tried to reinstall. MCPAN goes on a killing spree and tries to download half of CPAN. Many of the modules it says are missing I know for a fact are there (esp. since I already had Catalyst installed and running before).
After watching thousands of lines running by I found this sprinkled throughout:
(why it doesn't stop trying after the first failure is a mystery to me... )
cpan> o conf returns /usr/bin/make but I tried perl -MCPAN -e shell CPAN> o conf make /usr/bin/make anyway, nothing changed.
If anyone could talk me off the ledge it would be greatly appreciated as I mostly try to make pretty pictures and avoid the sticky guts of the filesystem if at all possible. (blaaarrrrgghhhh!)that mark guy
