Just a note, please keep the bioperl-l mail list copied as someone else might chime in if I don’t immediately reply.
Judging by the installation it appears that the tools are already installed (note all the lines indicating that the installation is being skipped). You need to specify something like ‘cpanm -f --reinstall Bio::Root::Version’ to make it reinstall everything. To be honest I would think a forced installation would suffice to overwrite the current one, but maybe this is a fail-safe to be more explicit if a full reinstallation is needed.
Also, I wouldn’t mess with CPAN settings while using perlbrew (I’ve never seen anyone need to adjust them prior to a run). Keep in mind that the cpan client and cpanm are not the same thing, the latter is designed as a much simpler installer, akin to Python’s pip.
Also remember that odd-numbered perl releases are considered ‘developer’ releases, and may break. So far CPAN tests for this version seem fine though.
Good afternoon Dr. Fields,
I've tried the following for the installation
cpan>o conf prefer_installer MB
cpan>o conf prefer_installer commit
however the installation failed after running for a few minutes
I then tried forcing the installation with
cpamn -f Bio::Root::Version
however once again the installation failed. I've attached the .log file.
Should I try the installation with an older version of Perl? There was a suggestion on the GitHub discussion forum to do so, I'm still using 5.25.6. I can also just wait till you push out the fix you have in the pipeline.
Thanks again for all your help.
