I have Centos 6 setup and have installed perl-CPAN. When I run cpan it takes me through the setup and ends by telling me it can't connect to the internet and to enter a mirror. I enter a mirror, but it still can't install the package. What am I doing wrong?
If you're accessing the net via proxies, you can specify them in the CPAN configuration or via environment variables. The variable in the $CPAN::Config takes precedence. <ftp_proxy> Your ftp_proxy?  <http_proxy> Your http_proxy?  <no_proxy> Your no_proxy?  CPAN needs access to at least one CPAN mirror. As you did not allow me to connect to the internet you need to supply a valid CPAN URL now. Please enter the URL of your CPAN mirror CPAN needs access to at least one CPAN mirror. As you did not allow me to connect to the internet you need to supply a valid CPAN URL now. Please enter the URL of your CPAN mirror mirror.cc.columbia.edu::cpan Configuration does not allow connecting to the internet. Current set of CPAN URLs: mirror.cc.columbia.edu::cpan Enter another URL or RETURN to quit:  New urllist mirror.cc.columbia.edu::cpan Please remember to call 'o conf commit' to make the config permanent! cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9402) Enter 'h' for help. cpan> install File::Stat CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.20) LWP not available Warning: no success downloading '/root/.cpan/sources/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz.tmp918'.
