Module installation and permissions

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Alexandre Jaquet, Dec 8, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    I need to install new module on my shell but I didn't have
    a root account.

    I've upload and decompress the module archive in my
    home directory (/home/alexj/lib/Net-IRC)

    Then I've type the following commands :

    -bash-2.05b$ perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~

    Writing Makefile for Net::IRC
    -bash-2.05b$ make
    Manifying blib/man3/Net::IRC.3
    Manifying blib/man3/Net::Connection.3
    Manifying blib/man3/Net::DCC.3
    Manifying blib/man3/Net::Event.3
    -bash-2.05b$ make install
    Warning: You do not have permissions to install into
    /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd at
    /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 62.
    Installing /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/Net/IRC.pm
    mkdir /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/Net/IRC: Permission denied at
    /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 120
    *** Error code 2

    Stop in /usr/home/alexj/lib/Net-IRC-0.74.
    -bash-2.05b$


    Then I've made another try with :

    perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/alexj/lib/Net-IRC-0.74/
    Writing Makefile for Net::IRC
    -bash-2.05b$ make
    Manifying blib/man3/Net::IRC.3

    Manifying blib/man3/Net::Event.3
    -bash-2.05b$ make install
    Warning: You do not have permissions to install into
    /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd at

    /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 120

    Stop in /usr/home/alexj/lib/Net-IRC-0.74.
    -bash-2.05b$

    Any idea on how to install that :/

    Thanks in advance.

    Most Web hosts won't allow IRC because it hogs bandwidth. My guess is you've
    been told by your admin that they won't install the module, so now you're
    trying to do it on your own. Am I close, or have you bypassed the admin
    entirely in the hopes of sneaking it onto the system? I would suggest that
    you just learn to live without it.
