    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 ?

    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. :)

    Which distribution do you use?
    Instead of installing DB_File manually, you could install the package that comes with your distribution.
