You are trying to install it at system level, and probably didn't use sudo (assuming you have admin rights). i.e. You don't have permission to modify that folder.

Another option, useful if you don't have admin rights, is to install things under your home directory. Consult the docs.

I might be able to be more specific if your questions were.

For a start what OS are you using, do you have admin rights, what are you trying to do, and what did you do to get that error message? We're not mind readers

It is it your own computer, then you should have root access

To run a command as root, prefix it with sudo. For example,

ls

becomes:

sudo ls

This will ask for your password. This was just a silly example using ls to list the contents of the current directory - although you can do this to list the contents of protected directories so it can be useful.

It sounds like you are trying to install a Perl module (Config General 2.49 ). Are you using CPAN or some other method? I'm afraid I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to perl, so hopefully someone else will be able to assist you.
