This is sort of related. I too have Ubuntu GG and had trouble applying modules with the CPAN shell. Some would apply and some wouldn't. At that time I had not enable the root account and was doing everything with "sudo". A week or so later I was at it again but as the root user and had no problems installing modules. Has anyone else experienced this?

I do agree that it takes forever due to all the dependancies but I attribute that to Perl 5.8 and everyone holding their breath for 6.0.
