Padre crashes when clicking "Install CPAN modules"

Padre crashes when trying to use :

Tools => Module Tools => Install CPAN modules"

I first observed this in version 0.63 shipped with the padre+perl .msi installed downloaded from the website.

I tried upgrading Padre ( through command line cpan Padre ) to v0.72, but the crash still occurs.

However as someone pointed out on the #padre channel, the crash does not occur when running padre from the padre.bat script

  • Component changed from editor to advanced perl tools

I also have a crash on Ubuntu 10.04 (version 0.73):

This is the message I get:

Can't write to '/home/mrg/.local/share/.cpan/sources/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz.tmp6395-6395': Permission denied at /usr/share/perl5/LWP/ line 105. at /usr/share/perl5/LWP/ line 844.

I cannot reproduce my report from 3 weeks ago (now on 0.75), but this 'works':

  1. use sudo cpan outside of Padre
  2. Try to install a new module inside of Padre.

Result: Padre crashes with

L: Test::Perl::Dist
mkdir /home/mrg/.local/share/.cpan/sources/authors/id/C/CS: Permission denied at /usr/share/perl/5.10/CPAN/ line 501
Perl exited with active threads:

Upgraded Padre to 0.74 through "cpan Padre", problem persists.
