I'd like to give Catalyst (http://www.catalystframework.org/) a try but can't seem to get past the installation process on my server.

I followed the CPAN setup instructions here - http://docs.webfaction.com/software/perl.html#installing-cpan-modules. Once CPAN was configured I tried installing Catalyst using the instructions from their site.

Running: cpan Catalyst::Runtime Catalyst::Devel

puts me into a massive dependency build process for CPAN and I seems to use up quite a bit of memory and have my process get killed because of it. I'm curious has anyone run into this issue or is there a preferred way to install Catalyst on webfaction servers?

I do know that other users have run into the same problem when trying to build Catalyst. As far as I know, there is no way to get around the high memory usage caused by Catalyst's build process.

Our newer servers support up to 512MB per user, so that might be enough to allow the build to finish. If you'd like to move to one of those machines, you can use our migration request form to get that ball rolling.

Hope that helps!
