in reply to Re: Installing a Second perl
in thread Installing a Second perl

The CPAN install problem seems to be that it is trying to write to the '/usr/local/man/man3' directory, which is the big question here! It shouldn't be!

Is there something wrong with that ? I have a perl that I built myself in /usr/local, and apart from having to install modules as root, there haven't been any problems.

Cheers,
Rob

    Well, that is fine for a /usr/local/ perl, but not for one that is configured for /lab like the OP is trying to do.

    It should be installing man pages into /lab/man which is what OP has permissions to use.

      Quite correct - I had missed that the op was intending to install perl into /lab. (Assumed he had intentionally installed perl into the default /usr/local.)
