The URL is bogus. You better start with 'o conf init urllist' and follow
the dialogue.

Verify any URL displayed, e.g.

lwp-request -Se '
http://mirrors.cpan.org/showmirror.cgi?name=xmission.com/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
'

Hi,

Thanks for the response.
You better start with 'o conf init urllist' and follow the dialogue.
That leads to an infinite loop:

$ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell
Password:
Terminal does not support AddHistory.

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9402)
Enter 'h' for help.

cpan[1]> o conf init urllist
You have no /Users/me/.cpan/sources/MIRRORED.BY
I'm trying to fetch one
CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9719)

Trying with "/usr/local/bin/curl -L -f -s -S --netrc-optional" to get
"http://mirrors.cpan.org/showmirror.cgi?name=xmission.com/MIRRORED.BY"
You have an empty /Users/me/.cpan/sources/MIRRORED.BY,
I'm trying to fetch a better one

...and on and on for many pages of the exact same output until I hit
control-C.

Verify any URL displayed, e.g.
lwp-request -Se '
http://mirrors.cpan.org/showmirror.cgi?name=xmission.com/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
'


Here is what I get:

$ lwp-request -Se '
http://mirrors.cpan.org/showmirror.cgi?name=xmission.com/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
'
GET
http://mirrors.cpan.org/showmirror.cgi?name=xmission.com/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz-->

What does that tell me?

Thanks.
