Hi Sheila,

Please be sure to keep bioperl-l on the Cc so that everyone can follow along
the discussion.

I don't think this is a BioPerl-specific problem. Can you successfully
install other modules from CPAN?

Could you type "o conf" in cpan and paste the results into your reply to
this message?


Dave
