Trying to install module with CPAN

P: n/a
Hi
I am trying to install MIME::Base64 and MIME::QuotedPrint using CPAN on
Suse 9.1. Suse comes with Perl v5.8.3 already installed.

The error message I receive is as follows:

MOOSE:/usr/local/cpanSGH # perl -MCPAN -e "install 'MIME::Base64'"
CPAN: Storable loaded ok

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just looked to see if there
were any environment variables in 'profile'. No referens to Perl
anywhere. Hmm, seems a bit strange. How can I check the Perl variable?
