in thread Installing perl modules via webmin

On my several computers running SuSe Linux, I have found everything I wanted worked by doing the following. First, search and see if it is available as RPM on Suse Disks and use Yast. Then, if it is not on Suse, goto CPAN and do the perl -MCPAN -e shell, then Install WhateverModule works great.

If it ain't broke, I don't believe in fixing it... So I stick with Yast and CPAN. If I was on a different distro, I would start with a similar approach.

    I agree with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra...but I am also open minded and will listen if someone comes to me with a fresh idea....even it if is only long enough to dismiss the idea as not for me. ;-)

    But I suspect I am going to remain in the same camp as you...on Debian I can pretty much get anything I need pretty quickly with apt-get install someapp.

    combine that with CPAN and you have a lazy admin's dream
