    After a reinstall
    suse 9.3 goes ok until i reach this section:
    Login to your command line as root and run the following command to start the Perl shell:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell

    The following Errors are returned. panic: Lockfile /root/.cpan/.lock
    reports other host and other process 19637.
    Cannot proceed.
    Any Ideas? please.

    Can you try
    perl -MCPAN -e shell
    again? If it still comes up with an error, run
    rm -f /root/.cpan/.lock
