Hoping somebody can help me please, because I'm not very familiar with installing via CPAN.
My machine is running Fedora 15 (64-bit), and I'm trying to install Net:SSH2 via CPAN, but I am running into problems (as shown by the output below). I resolved one previous issue, with it being unable to locate the C compiler, but I do not know how to progress further, from where I am now. It seems to start failing at the "Can't link/include 'libssh2.h', 'ssh2'" line. Perl version is v5.12.4.(64-bit).
cpan> install Net::SSH2

The libssh2 library is required by this module. If you don't have it,
+ you can
download it from http://www.libssh2.org; you may also need OpenSSL, wh
+ich can be
obtained from http://www.openssl.org.
Debian: sudo aptitude install libssh2-1-dev
OpenSUSE: sudo zypper in libssh2-1 libssh2-devel
You can pass your libssh2 lib and include dirs on the command line. E.
perl Makefile.PL lib=$HOME/libssh2/lib inc=$HOME/libssh2/include
Can't link/include 'libssh2.h', 'ssh2'
No 'Makefile' created RKITOVER/Net-SSH2-0.39.tar.gz

With regards to libssh2, then I have already checked to make sure it is installed, per below:
yum install libssh2
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package libssh2-1.2.7-1.fc15.x86_64 already installed and latest versi
Nothing to do
