XML::RSS Install Fails on Mac OS X 10.6 (Perl 5.10)

After upgrading from Mac OS 10.5 to 10.6, I found as usual that most
of my Perl modules were gone; also Apple upgraded to Perl 5.10.

So, I reinstalled stuff using cpan, but XML::RSS failed after several
tries.  It seems to follow the prerequisite tree through DateTime::
and then things start to look bad when it tries to install
Params::Validate.  Does anyone know what might be wrong?  I tried it
several times, also tried to install Params::Validate directly but got
similar results.

Here is the part where it looks like things start to look bad...

Creating new 'Build' script for 'Params-Validate' version '0.92'
Could not read '/Users/jk/.cpan/build/Params-Validate-0.92-ecePzk/

So I solved this problem by downloading from cpan the latest .tar
files for each of the following modules

Params::Validate
DateTime
DateTime::TimeZone
DateTime::Locale
DateTime::Format::Mail
DateTime::Format::W3CDTF
XML::RSS

And then I very carefully merged the contents of their 'lib'
directories into the /Library/Perl/5.10.0 directory on my Mac.  I
still believe that Params::Validate was the only one that the cpan
tool wouldn't install, but unfortunately I screwed up on my first
attempt and had several modules manually installed before I realized
what I had done wrong, so I just did them all manually.

Prior to the manual installation, I had tried using the cpan tool on
three different days and it always failed as explained in my previous
post.  Also, I updated the cpan tool, i.e. "install cpan", since I
noticed a warning that it was old.  But none of this helped the
problem.

So if anyone could explain why the cpan tool might have failed, that
would be nice to know for future reference.  Anyhow, XML::RSS seems to
work now, at least for my purposes.

Are Mac OS X 10.5.8's iLife programs safe to use in Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x?
Hi. Someone told me that Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x do not come with iLife like the older Mac OS X versions (e.g., 10.5.x). I did not know this! Since my client uses iPhoto that came preinstalled on his old 2008 MacBook Pro's Mac OS X 10.5.x (10.5.8 right now), can he use the old one from 10.5.8? Or will he need a third party replacement (needs to import/copy the old image files) or buy a new iPhoto version for his photo(graph)s? I recalled he did not like iPhoto and wonder if the new one is any better. Thank you in advance. :) -- Quote of the Week: "Every ruler...

Problems with Perl 5.10 on Mac OS 10.5.2
This is a heads-up for Mac Perl users. Yesterday I took the plunge and downloaded the Perl 5.10.0 source and built it on my Mac Pro running OSX 10.5.2. I used all of the default configuration parameters, except building for threads, for which I said "yes". The build went OK, but 'make test' had one error in lib/locale.t, something about a missing locale for test 99, which appears to be the "C" locale. I went ahead and did the install, anyway, since I am not too concerned about locales. Everything looked fine, and I was able to update a CPAN module that wasn...

perlcc for perl 5.12.3 for Mac OS X 10.7.5

2x speed boost from Mac OS X 10.5 to 10.6 upgrade
I just upgraded a late-2007 iMac from OS X 10.5 to 10.6, and there's a 2x speed increase in IDL 7.1! I thought I had seen the same thing with my MacBookPro, but I wasn't sure. So I ran IDL's time testing routines before and after the upgrade--about 1 hour apart.

All other applications were closed and quit. Both tests were run 10 times in a row so the minimum time could be selected. In both ca...

Mac OS 10.3, perl 5.8.2, library problem: modules not seen
Just upgraded from 5.8 to 5.8.2 on OSXS 10.3.1. During configure I specified /Library/Perl for site-specific libs. It compiled, tested, and installed ok. But when I went to test a script it complained that a module wasn't there, though it's in the perl lib path. So I ran CPAN to re-install the module (DBI). Here's the perl lib path: perl -e 'print "$_\n" for @INC' /sw/lib/perl5 /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.2/darwin-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.2 /Library/Perl/darwin-2level /Library/Perl /Library/Perl Here's the old DBI: l /Library/Perl/darwin/DBI total 624...

Installing MAC OS X 10.1.4, planning 10.3 install as well.
Hi, I changed my Hard drive from a 4 GB to an 18 GB Travelstar (I posted early about using it). I have partitioned it to a 7.7 GB and a 9.2 GB. I installed 9.2 on the 7.7 GB and ran the 10.1.4 install (same way I did with my old drive) but this time, the 10 X install will not detect my 9.2 install, it will ask me to erase the hard drive contents. I then continued, then the install will just hang intermittently, one time during the time it will ask for the language and most often when it is copying the basic config files. Can I install OS X 10.3 here, I know it is not supported by u...
