andiamo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I need to download the Crypt:SSLeay Module in order for a program called webinject to work. But it won't work for some reason. I downloaded openssl using the correct configuration options that the cpan documentation mentioned, but it still won't work I get this error. crypt_ssleay_version.h:1:25: fatal error: openssl/ssl.h: No such file or directory Although, there is an ssl.h file on my system. Please help. I am using the latest version of ubuntu. I have trying to download this module manually. In a related issue, the 'cpan' command no longer works for me when I am the root user. I get this error. Cannot do `initialize' in Term::ReadLine::Gnu at /usr/share/perl/5.14.2// line 272 I don't know if that is related, but I would like to solve that problem too. Thanks.

    Does this help, with problem #1? Using the packages prepared for your particular flavor of *nix is often the answer.

    And self-help, using a search engine such as big G, MS's entry, DuckDuckGo, etc., often helps you find that answer (Google with search terms "Ubuntu Crypt:SSLeay Perl" provided the source linked above.

    To deal with "'cpan' command no longer works for me when I am the root user" you may wish to consult the various sources of Ubuntu-specific information... and when you do so you may wish to explain "no longer"" (implying that it once did "work" but stopped at some point). IOW, what did you change just before you started having the problem?

      I think I might have installed the perl module, but this is the error I get when I run the program that uses Crypt::SSLeay. Can't locate loadable object for module Crypt::SSLeay in @INC However, I made sure that the location for the PERL5LIB variable now includes the location of Crypt/ I don't understand why the problem is.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
