    First, download the source here.

    Second, install using

    ./configure --with-gnu-ld, make, make install, (do your system's ldcon +fig. The libs are in /usr/local/rrdtool-1.3.1/lib).

    Third, cd to ./rrdtool-1.3.1/bindings/perl-shared.

    Fourth, run perl Makefile.PL, make, make test, make install.

    Fifth, RRDs is installed.

    Sixth, run cpan RRD::Simple

    Seventh, done!

    Update: if t/32 fails, do force install.

      No, don't do that on a Debian system. Use the Debian provided packages, or compile a complete perl suite together with modules in /opt or /usr/local. Debian system tools rely heavily on perl, and you may break your system by overwriting modules with different versions that the package manager isn't aware of.

    As Anonymous said, you may have deleted a system directory and your system may be broken and need reinstallation. First, use 'aptitude' instead of 'apt-get', it's more advanced; aptitude and apt-get share most options. You should first try to repair the installation:

    aptitude update aptitude install -f

    This should update/remove/install needed packages.

    If these commands fail to set back the system to a working state, as apparently you're not a skilled Debian administrator, you must consider your system broken. You'll have to reinstall it from scratch. else you can retry to install :

    aptitude install librrds-perl
