Comments: CPAN: Writing Makefile ... NOT OK


Today, when I was installing some missing Perl modules for SpamAssassin on a bare Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron installation I had to use the CPAN shell for a few of those modules. But when I tried to install the first of the Perl modules not available via apt, IP::Country::Fast, I got the following output:

Read the rest of CPAN: Writing Makefile ... NOT OK.


May i thank you for your solution of the problem, it helped resolving my problems with perl en CPAN...
