I was hoping I'd be able to write this up as a how-to, but not yet. Here is where things are at the moment:
- Ubuntu installed
- perlbrew installed
- appended source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc to .bashrc
- installed perl 5.8.1
- cpanm installed for desired version of perl
- dependencies installed
- module to be debugged downloaded
And at this point I bounced off of a brick wall. Even though I was careful to issue perlbrew use perl-5.8.1
and then used perlbrew install-cpanm
before using cpanm to install the dependencies, running perl Makefile.PL
politely told me that none of them were there or that they were not current etc. At that point I did:
which certainly looked correct. Just to check, I rebooted and before switching perls, I again did:
which did not look alright. Clearly cpanm is not correctly installed at least in terms of where it is placing modules. From what I had read, I was expecting a pretty much seamless fit between cpanm and perlbrew---at a guess I was wrong. Given how little I know about Linux it is entirely possible that I've taken something the rest of you take for granted and found yet another way to screw it up (YAWTSIU) ---regardless, I'm more or less stuck at this point. Suggests and tips as usual appreciated...
