( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello everyone,

I am on a Linux machine with Busybox where gzip is a symlinked command to Busybox, and not the full gzip utility. Perl-cpan fails to unpack CPAN modules saying:
Giving up parsing your /home/nemo/.cpan/sources/modules/02packages.det +ails.txt.gz, too many errors/usr/bin/gzip: invalid option -- 'q' BusyBox v1.21.1 (2015-08-24 08:58:18 UTC) multi-call binary. Usage: gzip [-cfd] [FILE]... Compress FILEs (or stdin) -d Decompress -c Write to stdout -f Force /usr/bin/gzip: invalid option -- 'q'

How can I solve this problem? How can I fix my cpan installation?

Best regards
imho

In reply to CPAN won't work with Busybox gzip by imho
