Or one could create their own RPMs, but that is a lot of work when you hit a modules that has a lot of dependencies. It would be great if CPAN would generate the RPM's as well as working out and installing the dependencies.

    If only there was some kind of magical cpan2rpm/cpan2deb... cavapackager ... Re: dependency error isntalling rpm package

      Haven't tried cpan2deb but cpan2rpm does not work with many CPAN modules and also it doesn't deal with dependencies the way CPAN does. So I guess they aren't as magical as you think.

        Sure they are, why complicate things?

        simple way, first build 500 perl modules and all required dependencies, and then make an rpm -- there you go

        build it the way the debian release managers build it, one module at a time, until you have a chain of dependencies

        It doesn't get more magical than this
