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.
