can't get net-snmp to work at RH9


Problem: trying to install net-snmp on a RedHat 9 server, using a RedHat9 specific rpm, fails on two dependencies:
Perl(Tk) and Perl(Term::ReadKey)

I tried to install Tk and TermReadKey in two ways:
1) with perl -MCPAN -e shell, and then install both from CPAN
2) downloaded the tarballs and then ran configure and make according the options in the README.

Got some error messages in both situations...

When I try to reinstall via the Perl/CPAN method, it responds with 'already installed', but installation of the rpm-package still fails...

Anybody any clues on how to confirm if these modules/packages (whatever they are) are installed correctly, and if so how to make sure rpm knows where they are; or another solution to solve the problem?

TIA,
Richard

That's because neither of those methods update the RPM databases to indicate the packages are installed. Try searching rpmfind.net for RPMS for them.

Or skip the net-snmp RPM and build it from source too.

The base net-snmp agent and tools don't need Perl, so unless you are doing agent development, you can probably specify --nodeps to install w/out checking dependencies.
