$ ppm install Gtk3 Gtk3

Does it make any difference if you instead run ppm install Gtk3
Are you running this in a bash shell ? I've never used ppm in anything other than the cmd.exe shell, but I'm not sure, off the top of my head, whether that should matter.
Also, what does perl -V output ?

I downloaded and it unpacked fine for me.
Also grabbed which seems ok, too.

    ppm install Gtk3 makes no difference, only the error message is usually about Gtk3-516.tar.gz, after really really long delay

    I'm using cmd.exe

    oh, PPM.log sometimes complains

      This sounds similar to the difficulty that I currently have in accessing many of the files at (and lots of other places on the internet) via http.
      I'm assuming that the problem with the files that I can't get (eg is the same as the problem with other files that I can't get (eg
      But maybe there's some different issues at play there.
      Can you successfully browse to either of those 2 links ?

      According to the raw access logs, when I try to browse to ppmindex.html, server receives the request and replies with the usual 200 response, but that response never gats back to me. Every 30 seconds the browser sends off another request, with exactly the same result. After the 10th request has been sent, the browser just gives up and times out.

      I grabbed the raw access logs for what might be your attempts to ppm install Gtk3, and I've stuck 'em on my scratchpad. There's a couple of 416 errors in relation to requests from Mozilla. The "bytes" number is wrong - which, I guess, explains the "416". And there's a couple of 404's and some 3xx redirects (again resulting from requests from Mozilla) but, AFAICT, the requests from D:\perl\citrusperl\site\bin\ppm.bat\0.1 are all being successfully met, except for a legitimate 404 for GET /ppm/file:Image-Magick.ppd.ppd
      However, maybe that's not you ... if you want to send me your IP address I can take another look.

        It is me, weird ... but I've also used curl successfully to download some files ...

        But maybe there's some different issues at play there.

        I've installed Image-Magick successfully

        I hope its not bugs in LWP, i'd like to fix those

        curl mostly works for downloading from you

        but ppm is spazzing on reading local .ppd files

        I hope I'm the only one with this issue ... could be bad ram :/
