Have done root tarball install many times, but virtual is proving troublesome.
Trying to install in virtual hosting account under /home/user/interchange.
Source is located at /home/user/interchangesource.
When I run the ./configure script, I get the following error:
opendir(./../..): Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/FindBin.pm line 143
Can't write uid file: Permission denied
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target `test'. Stop.
I searched the archives and found a few things.
1. Tried 'installopts' here:
but got the same error.
2. Tried cpan_local_install, everything installed, but still got the above error.
Marty, in the following thread, revised his FindBin.pm file. One problem for me is that I don't have the .bash file in my user directory. I have the .bash_history. So, I'm not sure how I could change the PATH to the revised FindBin.pm.
Would anyone know what else could be tried or have any suggestions?
Thanks very much.
