How to install CPAN libwww-perl

When installing csf firewall on a server, i got error libwww-perl not installed.

I installed it with yum on CentOS 5

yum install perl-libwww-perl

    That’s exactly what I was looking for, thanks! apt-get always seems to have the packages listed a lot better than yum.

    Thank you. I solved the problem.

    Good info. I was trying to install LWP::UserAgent using cpan, and failing miserably. I read somewhere that I needed libwww-perl.

    That did the trick!

    # yum install perl-libwww-perl

    # cpan LWP::UserAgent
