I always start out trying to stick with RPM packages when using a fresh RH/CentOS box and every single time I end up having to pull modules from CPAN because the shrinkwrapped ones simply don't work or miss out on dependencies.

Last time it happed was just a few days ago when I tried to install HTML::Mason and Apache::Request was missing. The official repo had no RPM for my platform and so I had to install about 25-30 modules from CPAN anyway. The RPM'ed HTML::Mason ofcourse refused to work with those, so I had to reinstall that from CPAN as well.

Long story short: Just bite the compile bullet and install from CPAN right away, because that's what you'll end up doing anyway.

Just my 0.02

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
