I have searched a bit but not found an a resolution. If there is one, please point me to it.

I have downloaded and installed the DNS only version of CPanel in the past without a problem, but when my clustered machine died, I had to reinstall and have had no success.

For the last two months I have been downloading the Cpanel Only installer from layer1.cpanel.net and running it on a variety of machines and linux distributions including various versions of Red Had and CentOS. Every single one of them locks RealPerlInstaller at 99% CPU power and continually prints ....... across the screen. If I kill the installer, the rest of it loads, but then it doesn't function. Why is the RealPerlInstaller getting caught?

Thank you.

Yeah. I have tried upgrading Perl manually, but it makes no difference.

Before Manual update 5.8.4 - After manu Perl Update 5.8.7

When installing Cpanel / Dns ONLY in the past, I have never had to manually update perl before. On the 9 Cpanel Systems that I currently run, they have all installed the full version fine and updated their own perl versions just fine. I think the DNS only installation script is broken somewhere. Perhaps a dependency got updated and the script didn't. I have tried installing it on dedicated hardware with CentOS 3, 4, Fedora Core X. I have tried installing in CentOS 4.x brand new VE s on Virtuozzo and all of them get stuck on RealPerlInstall and continually print ........ on the screen line after line.

I had luck installing the DNS only version a few years ago (we run one offsite DNS only installation for our cluster), but that machine died and we have been unable to reinstall it.

Go on, have a guess
I'd suggest doing a strace on the process and find out what it is doing. Do make sure that you have a valid DNS resolver in /etc/resolv.conf so that the script is able to resolve the cpan mirror hostnames. Also, do check that there's no iptables firewall setup at this stage.

etc etc it goes in a super fast loop


also found out if i run it directly

Sorry, we have to rerun the configuration dialog for CPAN.pm due to
the following indispensable but missing parameters:

mbuild_arg, mbuild_install_arg, mbuild_install_build_command, mbuildpl_arg

/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/CPAN/Config.pm initialized.
