This is what is happening, I type i /mason/ from cpan and after displays all the different options it is showing this error:

87 items found
Use of chdir('') or chdir(undef) as chdir() is deprecated at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/CPAN.pm line 188, <FIN> line 2.

any idea what this all about?..

>The user that your web server runs as ("nobody" is a common choice, and the default on many systems), needs to be able to read the Mason build directory. If you are installing via CPAN as root, that directory is likely down root.cpan, which will have restrictive permissions. Try chmod'ding the build directory, or moving to a different (perhaps world-readable) build directory for the install.
