in reply to How should I manage CPAN when using two versions of Perl in my computer?

In general, with Linux distributions, you should avoid using the cpan utility to install modules to the system perl, and instead rely on the OS packaging system's pre-packaged cpan distributions. For example on my Fedora system I would install the 'perl-Mozilla-CA' rpm using dnf, rather than doing '/usr/bin/cpan Mozilla::CA'. I can't comment specifically on how openSUSE handles things.

    Thanks for your answer, Dave. Indeed, that seems like a very sound strategy.
