hi guys
it was a hard work for me too to get Catalyst to work, :). now i am 
going through some tutorials. currently i'm going through 
'Catalyst::Manual::Tutorial'. when i do a 'script/myapp_server.pl' my 
computer complains that some plugins are missing.
so i went to install them. but now i reached a point where i don't know 
what to do. the trouble began when i wanted to install 
'Catalyst-Plugin-Session-Store-FastMmap' manually (before i tried also 
'cpan install Catalyst-Plugin-Session-Store-FastMmap'). i downloaded 
'Catalyst-Plugin-Session-Store-FastMmap' from the web, unpacked it and 
did 'perl Makefile.PL'. as i typed 'make test' my computer said 
'Couldn't load plugin Catalyst::Plugin::SessionStateTest'[1].
when i go to search.cpan.org i am not able to find any plugin with the 
name 'Catalyst::Plugin::SessionStateTest'.
could anybody give me a hint what i can try next.

thanks in advance for your help.
