  • if you don't mind changing your paths a bit, use local::lib '/opt/perl' and forget about it.

    I'd say you're missing the arch-specific dirs (you probably are), but that can't be all, because that wouldn't explain Moose and Test::More.
    • I don't mind changing my paths inside regular Perl stuff... works good lasts long time already there.

      It's just when I'm sudo'd to run the cpan shell. I can't change root's paths (at least, not permanently) without defeating the purpose of having the libs separated. And even so, I'm doing a straight-up sudo, and PERL5LIB carries over.

      So I'm not at all sure that's the actual problem... it seems like whatever's doing the installation (Module::Install, I think) is failing to locate it internally. Not a failed r
      • And even so, I'm doing a straight-up sudo, and PERL5LIB carries over.
        Are you sure? I believe that by default sudo will clear PERL5LIB because of a security issue [].

        So, you can either edit /etc/sudoers to keep the value (not recommended) or do something like this. []
        • I Did Not Know That.

          Neither did my sysadmin/husband (though when I mentioned it, he went off into talking-to-the-ceiling land: "Huh! Yeah, that would... oh, then you could... yeah, that could be a problem... but you could... no... ")

          And hey, passing it on the command line works. Thanks!
