Hi,

I'm having the following problem: There are certain modules (like "Error") which I can install from the cpan> prompt using: cpan> install Error

And there are no problems installing it. It works just fine. But if I exit the cpan> shell and enter again typing "cpan <enter>", I can install that module again. And there are no problems with the installation. But obviously it's not registered as installed.

And every time I install them it would install them as if they have never been installed. However other modules such as "XML::RSS" are installed and it says that "XML::RSS is up to date".

What's the reason for not registering a module as installed?

NOTE: I'm executing everything as "root".
