CPAN Recursive dependency detected

December 21, 2009

Today I got a “Recursive dependency detected” message on CPAN while installing Config::Genreal.

Recursive dependency detected:
=> A/AN/ANDYA/Test-Harness-3.17.tar.gz
=> File::Spec
=> S/SM/SMUELLER/PathTools-3.31.tar.gz
=> Scalar::Util
=> G/GB/GBARR/Scalar-List-Utils-1.22.tar.gz
=> Test::More
=> M/MS/MSCHWERN/Test-Simple-0.94.tar.gz
=> Test::Harness.
Cannot continue.

I installed Test::Harness by hand and when returning to CPAN all was cleared.

cd /root/.cpan/build/Test-Harness-3.17
perl MakeFile.PL
make test
make install


From → Perl
