Huh. I have a 15" Macbook Pro (Intel Core Duo, aka 4 years old) running 10.6.2. I tried installing through CPAN and... yeah, that didn't work. I did manage to restore wxPerl from backup tonight, though, so at least everything else is not broken anymore.
When I try the app from the .dmg file, I get this lovely error dialog: "You can't open the application Padre.app because it is not supported on this type of Mac." There's nothing in the Console nor any other log file I can find.
Maybe I'll try building it from scratch without CPAN this weekend and see if I have any better luck. Thanks for the idea!
