moxliukas has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hello, monks!

I have a Slackware 8.0 server with perl 5.8.0 and I am unable to use CPAN module, as it gets killed in the process.

I really have no idea what is happening. I am using it while being root. Here is a log of things:

root@mfondas:~# perl -MCPAN -e "install 'DBI'" CPAN: Storable loaded ok Going to read /root/.cpan/sources/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz Going to read /root/.cpan/sources/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz Database was generated on Wed, 20 Nov 2002 02:24:06 GMT CPAN: HTTP::Date loaded ok Killed

Can anyone provide any pointers to what is happening? And how can I solve this problem? If i download modules first and do perl Makefile.PL && make && make install it works OK. It is only CPAN module that I am having problems with.

Thank you in advance

PS. Oh, I have tried to upgrade my CPAN module (it is now version 1.63) but the problem still remains
