[vox-tech] cpan and botched installation of Image::Timeline

Hi everyone,

Being my first time using CPAN to install a new perl module, I thought that it would be a piece of cake...

I attempted to install the module Image::Timeline like this:

$ cpan

cpan> install Image::Timeline

... it downloaded and installed GD first, and then started compiling the Image::Timeline module
...however one of the tests failed, and would not install. I forced the install to see if it would work anyways, but alas a simple script that calls this module always fails.

here is the low down on the module:

Right now I am stuck as to what I need to do in order to
1. remove this module from my local machine
2. re-install and save the error messages for further help from some kind soul

any ideas would be appreciated!
