Issue with perl -MCPAN -e 'install Module::Build';

Ahn asked:

While doing the perl -MCPAN -e ‘install Module::Build’; it gives the following error, How can I resolve it ?

/usr/bin/perl Build --makefile_env_macros 1
Can't locate Perl/OSType.pm in @INC (@INC contains: t/lib t/bundled lib /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at lib/Module/Build.pm line 13.

My answer:


What’s wrong with using the module provided by CentOS?

yum install perl-Module-Build

Come to think of it, the perl module that you really want (you didn’t specify what it is) is probably already in the repositories, too.
