in reply to Bundle::CPAN still failing.

Coincidentally, I installed Kubuntu on my x86_64 laptop. And I ran sudo cpan -e 'install Bundle::CPAN' without problems. Installed OK.

    Did you really run that and actually install Bundle::CPAN? Are there instructions somewhere telling you to run it like that?

    There's no -e switch to cpan, and the argument 'install Bundle::CPAN' should be treated as a single argument. There isn't any module named 'install Bundle::CPAN' so nothing happens. That is, if you're running the real cpan script and not some vendor modified one, in which case I'd like to see what they've done.

    The command you want is one of:

    % sudo cpan Bundle::CPAN % sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::CPAN'

    That would seem odd since Kubuntu/Xubuntu/Ubuntu should all pull from essentially the same package repositories (more or less). As I understand Ubuntu, there is only the current repository and then the next one for the Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu release coming six months down the road (as opposed to stable, testing, unstable).

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
