astroboy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I've just compiled perl 5.16.0 from source. When I run "cpan" straight after, most of the config runs smoothly, but then I get this:

Autoconfigured everything but 'urllist'. Now you need to choose your CPAN mirror sites. You can let me pick mirrors for you, you can select them from a list or you can enter them by hand. Would you like me to automatically choose some CPAN mirror sites for you? (This means connecting to the Internet) [yes] Looking for CPAN mirrors near you (please be patient) ........Can't call method "http" on unblessed reference at /usr/local/ +lib/perl5/5.16.0/CPAN/ line 1866.

Any is ideas? I'm running CentOS release 6.2 (Final)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
