problem install perl modules
 
Hi,

i followed the perfect debian setup und run "perl -MCPAN -e shell" in the console. After this i wanted to install:

install HTML::Parser
install DB_File
install Net::DNS

but i always get an error:

Code:

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for Net::IP
    -- NOT OK
Running make test
  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
Running make for O/OL/OLAF/Net-DNS-0.57.tar.gz
  Is already unwrapped into directory /root/.cpan/build/Net-DNS-0.57

  CPAN.pm: Going to build O/OL/OLAF/Net-DNS-0.57.tar.gz

    -- NOT OK
Running make test
  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

or

Code:

cpan>  install HTML::Parser
Running install for module HTML::Parser
Running make for G/GA/GAAS/HTML-Parser-3.50.tar.gz
  Is already unwrapped into directory /root/.cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.50
  Has already been processed within this session
Running make test
  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

I searched the forum and installed this way:

Code:

apt-get install libhtml-parser-perl libdb-file-lock-perl libnet-dns-perl
But what was the problem ?

greetings cirox

The make package was missing.

That happened to me today, Debian Sarge 3.1

Strange, never happened before ... ?

Maybe the package in cpan was broken broken for a short time.

Is it OK to use:

apt-get install libhtml-parser-perl libdb-file-lock-perl libnet-dns-perl ?

Yes, that should work. :)

I had the same problem on a redhat 7.2. Resolved with a simple
Code:

rpm -iv --replacepkgs perl-5.8.3-16.i386.rpm

As a general comment: I had loads of problems mixing CPAN and Ubuntu/Debian packages for Perl modules. Although there are people on the Internet succesfully mixing the two, the general advise is to stick to the modules within a distribution, e.g.
Code:

apt-get install libhtml-parser-perl libdb-file-lock-perl libnet-dns-perl
Often the problem is to find the right package, as the naming sometimes differs and you must try really hard to find the package/module you're looking for.

I use CPAN only as a last resort, if a tool needs a specific (new) version of a module. But somehow later on I always end up re-installing a server.

My 2ct: Stick to the packaged modules as much as you can. :)
