- Subject: Whither perl-CPAN-Meta-Requirements?
- Authentication-results: sourceware.org; auth=none
I am trying to install a perl module using cpan (target module not
available via cygwin setup), and the process is failing due to an
out-of-date CPAN::Meta::Requirements module. I searched the cygwin
package list, and perl-CPAN-Meta-Requirements-2.140-2 appears there (I'm
looking in x86_64), but it does not show up in cygwin setup until I
uncheck "hide obsolete packages," and then the latest version appears as
a "dummy". Same with perl-CPAN-Meta. I can apparently select an older
version (and I may still try that), but I am confused by the packaging.
Did these get absorbed into some other package? I do see some of the
files exist in perl_base-5.26.1-1, which I have installed, but that
apparently does not provide a recent enough version of
Have I entered version hell by using cpan?
Is there a better way?
