Perl Module Dependancy

apps

#1

I am trying to install the perl module FFmpeg. It depends on two other modules.

Image::PBMlib
Image::Magick::Iterator

I followed the Wiki at
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/CPAN

I had absolutly no problem installing the two modules that FFmpeg depends on. They went exactly where the Wiki instructed and I became familure with the idea of installign modules when you dont have root.

Unfortunatly, when I try to install the perl module FFmpeg via Cpan it does not find the modules that it depends on and aborts. I also tried downloading it localy, uploading to the server, and then installing it myself without the Cpan shell. Same results.

So, I seem to have no problem installing modules that have no dependancy but if I have a module that has a dependancy and that dependancy is in my perlmod dirrectory, I am out of luck as it does not seem to look there.

Any work around ?
