Threaded View

Hello All,
I am a beginner and I am trying to install a bioinformatics
utility(Interproscan) on a Sun Solaris machine. This software is based
on Perl packages and I am having problems installing some specific
perl modules. Can someone help??
I need to install the following perl modules:
Module XML::Parser
Module XML::Quote
Module Mail::Send
Module DB_File
Module IO::Scalar
Module URI::Escape
Module IO::String
I have tried installing as per the instructions on
using CPAN. However I have this error:
Writing Makefile for ---(module)
    -- NOT OK
Running make test
  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
I had another error that asked me to declare the LIBEXPAT and
LIBEXPATINC path..even after declaring these paths, I could not
install the modules.
FYI I am running on Solaris 10

Please don't - it's rude and selfish.
