perl modules

Hi, I have attempted to install the webclamav webmin module so as to manage clamav. That seems to have gone ok as the clamav comes up under system. Now when I click the link I get the following:

Please, install the following perl modules from the Webmin CPAN module or download them directly from the CPAN web site and install them manually (read wbmclamav README file for this) in order to use this application:


Problem is when I go to instal the perl module nothing happens I get;

Installing Perl module Mail::Mbox::MessageParser from package perl(Mail::Mbox::MessageParser) …

Some modules failed to install from packages, trying installation from source instead…

and then it seems to hang

have even tried downloading from cpan to my computer and uploading it but still get the same.

Can anyone help?


Hmm, I’m not sure why that isn’t working – it’s possible that it’s prompting for some kind of information that Webmin isn’t able to handle.

You may want to try installing that module from the command line to see if that works, or perhaps to see what it’s doing when attempting to install.

You can install that module from the command line by running this command as root:

cpan -i Mail::Mbox::MessageParser

hey i am gettingthe same error please help
