    I got around this one by doing install Template::Toolkit in CPAN.

    However I ran into another one which I can't get around. When doing the install Bundle::Slash it prompts for a test db and username and such. Then it begins the tests and fails 2 of them. I'm also using the new MYSQL (47) and wondering if functionality was removed from something. I also gave the user (nobody) full permissions and such in MySQL with no luck. Any ideas would be helpful.

    FAILED test 44
    Failed 1/351 tests, 99.72% okay

      I got around that by just telling it not to do the database tests. :) Everything seems to be working fine so I'm not sure what the problem was with just those tests.

        How did you tell it not to do the tests?

        I'm installing through CPAN and I've tried to force install a bunch of the MySQL things and then go back and install Bundle::Slash but it keeps running the tests.

        I also did some poking around and one of the tests is tring to view all the databases on the SQL server. I don't really think that functionality is need to run slash.

          Type the command perldoc -m CPAN::Config. There will be an entry for 'build_dir'. Go there, and you'll find directories for each module that was downloaded and should have been installed. In each, you can follow the perldoc perlmod guidelines -- especially running make test and make install by hand. Sometimes that works better when the CPAN module install fails.

          You really shouldn't be getting errors, though. That's a bad sign.
