I've got this setup on Dreamhost / Debian Stable and it fails quite
often -- even with the most current CPAN.pm.  Yesterday it failed on
me trying to add C::P::Scheduler and dependencies.

I have another Debian Stable machine I was going to try from scratch
soon as I have a few free hours.  But, I'd rather unpack a tarball
someplace then screw with CPAN for that much time.

I think CatInABox is a away to keep from going insane.

How current is this?


Here's how big my local CPAN installe library is for my Catalyst

$ du -sh local
26M     local

$ find local  -name \*.pm | wc -l

$ find local  -name \*.so | wc -l
