in thread Module Install Troubles

Can't exec "/home/sgriffith/unix/bin/make": No such file or directory at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/CPAN.pm line 4566.

This looks like your CPAN.pm configuration has a bad value for the make value:

cpan> o conf make make /usr/bin/make

In the cpan shell you can set a new value with o conf make newvalue, and you'll want to o conf commit to save the new value.

    OK, here I think the problem was that I didn't have an entry for make install, but just for make in the cpan MyConfig.pm file.

    I've fixed that, and it progressed to test errors in Test::Exception. I've since switched back to the system make.

[1nickt]: Wow. I had heard about the chips on HP cartriddges but not that issue. I rejected HP's equivalent laptop becuase of build quality, very plasticky keyboard. And I believe HP is the champon of bloatware, too.
[stevieb]: Perhaps my experience with HP is a bit different as I always bought the highest end models through business.
[Corion]: 1nickt: At least the machines that $work is introducing to replace the Lenovo T60 here do not inspire confidence with me
