Can't locate ExtUtils/Packlist.pm in @INC


I'm trying to install a new perl module (prima) using the Makefile.PL but this error continually comes up:

Can't locate ExtUtils/Packlist.pm in @INC (@INC contains: . /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at Makefile.PL line 50.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 50.

I think I know that it means there's no packlist in the special include variable...but I have no idea really, nor any about how to fix it. What do I need to do to either fix this problem or install Prima manually?
Cheers.

The perl module 'Packlist.pm' is not a "packlist",
Quote:
... provides a standard way to manage .packlist files.
and if the 'ExtUtils::Packlist' isn't part of your
perl 5.10 ( for unknown reasons ) you can install
that first > > 'ExtUtils-Install-1.52'
( ExtUtils-Install-1.52.tar.gz )
http://search.cpan.org/~yves/ExtUtil...ls/Packlist.pm

But a much more convenient way is : use the 'cpan' shell :
'su' .. # 'cpan'
> cpan install Prima
which will also download and install the dependencies.

For some reason, I don't have the ability to go into the cpan shell, I attempted to # yum install cpan but it returned the following error:

Well, you may just have to try again. It works fine
in my Fedora 10 with all the updates from 'build 49'
to 'build 56'. ( Please read the attached text.)

Or try removing 'perl-Pod-Escapes' :
# rpm -e perl-Pod-Escapes
( # rpm -e --nodeps perl-Pod-Escapes )
and see if that improves the situation.

I *think* I've sorted it. from attempting to remove the offending dependency packages, it turns out for some reason I had two different versions installed, and although one was up to date, the dependencies of the older one wouldn't allow me to update perl or install cpan...deleted the misc second packages and it's updating perl right now (which it also wouldn't let me do) once all the updates are done I'll see if cpan installation will now work...
Cheers

okay, it started updating perl but it hangs after its downloaded but before it installs everything (on the first item, in fact). I've tried it with cpan too and it hangs there also.I think it might be the update of Perl itself that is causing it...:/
