Changing CPAN config. - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

The CPAN mirror I nominated as first choice never works. How can I move it to the bottom of the list without a complete reinstall? Doug. -- Love, even the love of God, is only mediated through persons. - Leslie Weatherhead....

    The last command will step you through the entire config process again,
    but the old values will be used as the default, so you just return through
    until you get to the urllist selection.

    There may be a way to easily change just the urllist, but I have never
    bothered checking into it.

    Most perl modules are in files cales 'module-name.pm", in this case
    "CPAN.pm". For RedHat 9, which runs the "updatedb" command nightly, you can
    just do:

    locate CPAN.pm

    And edit the reported file as root to something more workable. I tend to
    create a local FTP mirror myself, to vastly speed CPAN processes.

    Whoops. It's actually saved in the CPAN/Config.pm file: look for such a file
    with the "locate" command, or wherever you put your perl installation.
