    Ubuntu oS
    As Ubuntu is based on Debian, install the mod_perl package as described in the Debian reference manual. Ubuntu package search shows that it is packaged in the main repository, so you shouldn't have any problem installing it.

    Besides, the reason of complaining about -lperl is absence of necessary development packages containing headers and libraries to link with; check the presence of libperl-dev package.

    Sorry if my advice was wrong.
      Thank you very much

    any reason you can't use apt-get mod_perl2 (or whatever it is)? maybe you're missing apt-get perl-dev (or whatever it is)?
      Thank you too... even you should use "install " behind the apt-get :)

    Try installing it from the Ubuntu Software Center. It will auto install all the dependencies.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
