ERROR: Can't create '/usr/local/share/perl/5.20.2' mkdir /usr/local/share/perl: Read-only file system at /usr/share/perl/5.20/ExtUtils/ line 476.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at -e line 1. Makefile:695: recipe for target 'pure_site_install' failed make: *** [pure_site_install] Error 30

the path /usr/local/share/perl/5.20.2 always exist


The 1st two steps don't require su privileges:

perl Makefile.PL
However, the last step does. Use "sudo"
sudo make install


If "sudo" does not solve the problem, notice the error says "Read-only file system at... "

My guess is that /usr/local/share is a remote filesystem mounted read-only. But you need to modify a file on it..
