Hi
I am trying to install bioperl on my MACOSX and having problems. I try to
following the instructions both at the www.tc.umn.edu..... And in the README
and INSTALL files in the bioperl folder that I downloaded.
The error I get is the following: (end part of the output is copied)

I am not able to figure out whats' going wrong.
And when I try to run the CPAN, I get the follwing error. I have no idea how
to fix these. Any help is greatly appreciated.

[Sukhinders-Computer:~/Desktop/bioperl-1.5.2_102] sand60% perl -MCPAN -e
shell  Terminal does not support AddHistory.

There seems to be running another CPAN process (pid 7207).  Contacting...
Lockfile /Users/sand60/.cpan/.lock not writeable by you. Cannot proceed.
    On UNIX try:
    rm /Users/sand60/.cpan/.lock
  and then rerun us.
 at -e line 1

And doing what it says, removing some lock file doesn't help. I am wondering
if all this has something to do with having root priveleges on the system
and if so , is there an alternative? Thanks
