What module are you trying to install and from which repository?

A 404 error is "Not Found" not "authorization required".

Please post the complete error message. Posting a print script which shows your ppm command and the complete error would be best.

I stopped using ppm several years ago due to the many problems it has.

I now install all modules via cpan (or cpanm).

BTW, v5.10 is considered old and is no longer supported. You should upgrade and I would highly recommend moving away from Activestate and switch over to Strawberry perl.

I definitely agree with you, FishMonger.

I am using Perl mostly on various brands of Unix (AIX, HP-UX, et several version of Linux), as well as VMS, and, when on Windows, I use mostly *nix emulation under Cygwin, but when I need really Windows, I also now prefer Strawberry Perl to Active State, which I was using before.

One of the great thing about Strawberry is the version, which enables you to run different versions of Perl.
