[rt-users] I've asked the beginner perl group but no one responded

I'm trying to make the (re-)installation of RT as painless as possible 
for future generations.  I've encountered a problem though in that I 
can't get HTML::FormatText, XML::RSS or Apache-DBI to install through 
`make fixdeps`.  As a result I've written a small script which parses 
the output of `make testdeps` for any lines containing "MISSING".

I'm trying to pass these modules onto cpan and force their installation 
with no luck.  I've tried the following:
system "perl -MCPAN -e 'force install $mod_name'"

None work.

How can I take care of this?

JJ: "I've lost faith in you Matt."
Matt: "What?"
JJ: "You're listening to Metallica."
Matt: "Come on now, it isn't like I actually paid for it."

Keep up with me and what I'm up to: http://theillien.blogspot.com
