I have had very similar problems at work, where ppm would not work. The workaround I used was to download the files I wanted manually (the paths are pretty easy to figure out), then in ppm I added "." as a repository (ie, the current dir) and disabled the default repositories. Search and install worked fine. You'll need to get the .ppd, the .tar.gz, and the install_* file, if there is one (eg, if you wanted Crypt-SSLeay, you'd get install_ssl, Crypt-SSLeay.ppd, and Crypt-SSLeay.tar.gz from whichever repository you want)

Of course, I'm assuming that there's a ppm for macs... possibly an incorrect assumption. I know it works under linux and solaris, so I don't see why it wouldn't work on X/jag.

Some older ppm versions don't allow you to configure repositories, but >= v3.1 will.

Good luck!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
