Description George Clark 2006-02-04 17:06:08 UTC
Attempting to install Apache::Filter using g-cpan.  Unfortunately it creates a dependency for perl-gcpan/mod-perl-1.29   while my system already has  www-apache/mod_perl-1.29 installed.  (Note mod-perl vs. mod_perl).  After editing the generated Apache-Filter ebuild and rebuilding the digest I was able to install Apache::Filter.

gentoo 5.8.4 # g-cpan --install Apache::Filter
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata

 * g-cpan: Existing ebuild found for perl-gcpan/Apache-Filter

Calculating dependencies ...done!

(ebuild fails)

ken's broken apache-filter to where g-cpan cannot properly handle it (interactive configure). afraid this is one we can't do via g-cpan :(
