Thanks to bliako in Re^3: To Framework or not to Framework and others in the same
threadnode, I am trying to install a module using SSH to shared hosting as this has been disabled in cPanel. I am using PuTTY to connect. The module I'm trying to install as a test is Image::Info because it is small and useful so makes a good test.
The files are fetched OK and I can see them in the /home/shoples1/.cpan/build/ directory but install within CPAN finishes up with this error:
Configuring S/SR/SREZIC/Image-Info-1.42.tar.gz with Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Only one of PREFIX or INSTALL_BASE can be given. Not both.
No 'Makefile' created SREZIC/Image-Info-1.42.tar.gz
/usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/shoples1/perl/usr -- NOT OK
Failed during this command:
SREZIC/Image-Info-1.42.tar.gz : writemakefile NO -- No
+ 'Makefile' created
From what I can tell, CPAN is trying to use two different and incompatible configuration methods but I have no idea how to tell it to only use one. From this information
I have found conf makepl_arg
but CPAN says:
Unknown shell command 'conf'.
