    I just did a CPanel install and had the same problem.

    It was a fresh RedHat 9 server with no Apache or anything on it, but it did already have Perl on it.

    During the install I waited like 30-40 minutes at one point during the installation of Perl. I checked the install log and it froze at this:

    --------
    CPAN.pm: Going to build G/GB/GBARR/libnet-1.18.tar.gz

    Checking for Socket...ok
    Checking for IO::Socket...ok
    Checking if your kit is complete...
    Looks good

    Ah, I see you already have installed libnet before.
    --------

    I let it sit for a very long time and then got tired of waiting and sent a HUP signal to the most-child process which was a Configure script. This instantly kicked the Perl install in the ouchies and it proceeded to install. I assume that it froze because it was waiting for some kind of user input, or didn't expect this type of response. This is what it spat out after sending the HUP:

    ---------
    Do you want to modify/update your configuration (y|n) ? [no] Writing Makefile for Net
    make: *** No rule to make target `libnet.cfg', needed by `pm_to_blib'. Stop.
    /usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
    Running make install
    make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
    Bundle summary: The following items in bundle Bundle::libnet had
    installation problems:
    Net::Cmd
    Running install for module Term::ReadKey
    Running make for J/JS/JSTOWE/TermReadKey-2.21.tar.gz
    ----------

    ... and continued from there. I assume that I can just go in to ppm and install libnet again manually to successfully install this and everything should be OK?

    This same issue is causing issues with my automated deployments. Is there any way to suppress the prompt?

    http://www.cpanel.net/install.html

    Third paragraph under "cPanel Installation Instructions" states "At no point during the installation will you be prompted for user input." Does this mean the prompt is not cPanel generated?
    :confused:

    I have found that kill -13 on the 'perl Configure' process will get it to proceed in most cases.

    This did help now, but I worry a bit, that there will be something missing at the end...

    Thanks

    I have a same problem ... but for me I wait for perl installed done .... my problem is "Waiting for perl module install to complete.../" when I see the installed Log /var/log/cpanel-install-thread1.log it said

    If you're accessing the net via proxies, you can specify them in the
    CPAN configuration or via environment variables. The variable in
    the $CPAN::Config takes precedence.

    Your ftp_proxy?
    Your http_proxy?


    I'm not sure that the problem is come from CPAN


    Thanks

    Mine is caught on this:

    First, pick a nearby continent and country (you can pick several of
    each, separated by spaces, or none if you just want to keep your
    existing selections). Then, you will be presented with a list of URLs
    of CPAN mirrors in the countries you selected, along with previously
    selected URLs. Select some of those URLs, or just keep the old list.
    Finally, you will be prompted for any extra URLs -- file:, ftp:, or
    http: -- that host a CPAN mirror.

    (1) Africa
    (2) Asia
    (3) Central America
    (4) Europe
    (5) North America
    (6) Oceania
    (7) South America
