installing CPAN modules


im trying to install the CPAN module budle

perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Bundle::Bugzilla"'
but the thing is when i typed that and ran it, it asked me if i ws ready for manual setup - and i selected 'NO' because at the time i forgot to do something so i wasnt ready.

Thing is now i am i try to run it again and it wont run it just keeps coming back with error saying something about its not connected.

So my question is reallly does anybody know how to insall this module.

in rpm based systems, i'd prefer to use the rpm packages for cpan modules. try this site:

not sure if these are updated (and that is one of the reasons to use cpan - i use it on slackware)
