Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have Fedora Core 1, running on a old Celeron with 256Mb of RAM.
I have tried installing spamassassin-tools both from src.rpm to no avail.
I have succeeded in installing perl-Mail-Spamassassin and spamassassin (version 2.63-1)
BUT when I try to install spamassassin-tools (v 2.63-1) I get a dependency failure on
But Digest::SHA1 *is* installed. "cpan install Digest::SHA1" states that this module is up to date.
slocate -i Digest | grep perl | grep SHA1 reveals "Digest/SHA1" in at least three places of the perl module dir "vendor_perl", "site_perl" and I think even at the perl5/5.8.1 dir level.
So what can I do. Is rpm not finding it. Is there some kind of environment var I need. Maybe a path issue, I am not sure. But it is bugging the hell out of me. The Spamassassin INSTALL file states that Digest::SHA1 is nice but not a requirement, UNFORTUNATELY there are OTHER programs I am attempting to install that NEED "spamassassin-tools".
Is there a way via cpan to *maybe* uninstall the Digest::SHA1 and reinstall it??? I am not in the mood to uninstall perl.
