Good day bros. I am trying to install Math::GSL on a FC14 machine with Perl 5.12.x. Here is some of the output:

There was more output than this, but it was more than the terminal history could hold, and it went by too fast to see if there were other errors. Since it talked about ExtUtils::PkgConfig being needed, I installed that and tried to install Math::GSL again, but then it said

Running install for module 'Math::GSL' Running make for L/LE/LETO/Math-GSL-0.22.tar.gz Has already been unwrapped into directory /root/.cpan/build/Math-GSL +-0.22-ZItw13 No 'Makefile' created , won't make Running make test Make had some problems, won't test Running make install Make had some problems, won't install

I have the GSL library installed. Anyone know how to fix?

TIA...Steve

    Exit your current cpan session, then try again.

    You need to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH in order for it to find gsl.pc. Be prepared for test failures.
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
      OK so per Anonymous, I deleted the existing Makefile. Per marto I started a new session. Per Khen1950fx I set the env variable, but it's at /usr/local/pkgconfig.

      On trying to install again, I get

      But locate gsl.pc returns nothing :-/ locate GSL only returns stuff in /home/corman/.cpan/build. And it strikes me that this could be part of the problem. When I first tried to install this I forgot to SU to root. Do these files need to be in /root/.cpan/build if I'm running CPAN as root?

      But that still doesn't address the gsl.pc issue... UPDATE: I installed YAML. Now CPAN says:

      cpan[3]> install Math::GSL Running install for module 'Math::GSL' Running Build for L/LE/LETO/Math-GSL-0.22.tar.gz Has already been unwrapped into directory /root/.cpan/build/Math-GSL +-0.22-yrnKBo '/usr/bin/perl Build.PL ' returned status 256, won't make Running Build test Make had some problems, won't test Running Build install Make had some problems, won't install
        Why do you insist on using the cpan shell?
        GSL does not appear in /usr/local/pkgconfig, but it is installed

        Maybe you need to install the respective *-dev package for the GSL library (?)

        Not entirely sure about Fedora, but most distros split their library packages into two parts: one for the runtime libs (always needed), and one for the "development stuff" (with the package name usually ending in "-dev" or "-devel"), like header files, static libs, the package config (".pc") file, etc., which are only needed if you build software that links against the library in question.
