in reply to Lingua::Stem install woe

I'm not sure how to get around that - it's an annoying problem, as it aborts installation of everything. One workaround is to get the archive from, which contains the Lingua-Stem ppm package and all of it's dependencies. Unpack this to some directory, add this directory to your list of ppm repositories as
ppm rep add temp_repository file://C:/Path/to/current/directory
and then run something like the following in that directory:
use strict; opendir(my $dir, '.'); my @ppds = grep {/\.ppd$/} readdir $dir; closedir $dir; foreach my $p (@ppds) { my @args = ('ppm', 'install', $p, '--nodeps'); print "@args\n"; system (@args); }
This will use ppm to install all the packages without worrying about the dependencies; it'll fail on the Lingua-Stem-Snowball-Da package for the reason you found, but at least the others will get installed.
