Description Craig Kelley 2002-11-05 22:14:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
Use CPAN to install a new perl module.  It will put it in the following path:


but this path is not in @INC; so none of the custom modules can actually be used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): perl-5.8.0-55 and
Redhat 8.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
(as root)
perl -MCPAN -e shell;
CPAN> install Xmms  (be certain that both xmms and xmms-devel are installed)

 [wait and then exit CPAN]

Actual Results:  $ perl -MXmms
Can't locate Xmms.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i686-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5 .).

Expected Results:  No path error

Additional info:

Send email if you have any questions.  This pretty much makes CPAN useless, and
it works just fine with a normal installation of perl.

Ahh, perl-5.8.0-55 wasn't compiled with thread support, so of course this won't
