OT: CPAN problem during RT installation

I have a strange CPAN problem during RT dependencies installation.

when i run the following command, am throwed out with the errors attached.

[root@gridsupport rt-3.6.0]# perl sbin/rt-test-dependencies --with-mysql

Failed to load module CPAN. Module CPAN is distributed with Perl
and helps install perl modules from http://www.cpan.org. RT uses
this module to install dependencies, but module’s failed to load
with error above. You have several choices to install dependencies
in this situatation:

  1. check that you’ve configured CPAN module, to do this run
    /usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell program from shell, if it fails
    then you have to update CPAN module (see next suggestion)
    or use another way to install modules;
  2. try to update module CPAN, get distribution from
    CPAN-2.34 - query, download and build perl modules from CPAN sites - metacpan.org and try again;
  3. use a different tool to install dependencies, see description of
    the RT_FIX_DEPS_CMD environment variable in the output of
    the sbin/rt-test-dependencies program;
  4. install modules manually.

Now after that when i try to install directly through CPAN, i get another
set of errors:

[root@gridsupport ~]# perl -MCPAN -e shell
CPAN: File::HomeDir loaded ok

The system is AS4 and RT version trying to install is 3.6.0.
Has anyone seen these kind of errors? If so please help me sort it out.

Thanks for any and all help.

Haven’t seen this particular error - but then I’ve never used
CPAN on AS4 (only AS3 - no problems back then). Have you
run the update to the newer version of CPAN manually on that
box? If you haven’t I suggest you contact DeadRat support
and best of luck. If you have, try to revert to the previous
version and try again. I’d think it’s fair to say that the problem
isn’t RT related at all

Thanks for any and all help.

The problem here is probably in the CPAN module you have installed.
Update perl and its modules via AS4’s rpm update (yum ?). If that
doesn’t help download and install the CPAN module from src.On Nov 2, 2006, at 11:28 PM, Sujith Emmanuel wrote:
