Installing Config::General Failed

Threaded View

I am following instructions
to install Config::General.  However, when I tried sudo make install,
I got

make: stat:GNUmakefile: Permission denied
make: stat:makefile: Permission denied
make: stat:Makefile: Permission denied
make: stat:install: Permission denied
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

I am able to do make test.  Can someone explain what's wrong?

Is your problem specific to using sudo,
or do you have the same problem as root?
Is the sequence you ran the following:
  perl Makefile.PL; make; sudo make install
Is your current directory (e.g. home) nfs mounted?
What is your umask?

Are these questions trivial to you?
Sorry if they are.

[ Typically root will not be treated as root over nfs,
  so if your umask doesn't grant read access to other
  (e.g. 007), root won't be able to read the files
  you produced under your own id.
