Installing XMLTV; ReadKey.pm error


I'm trying to install XMLTV as a part of the install process for MythTV.

When I run the perl MakeFile.PL command, I get the following error.

Code:
root@pvr:/usr/local/src/xmltv-0.5.39# perl Makefile.PL 
You may want to explicitly give PREFIX to work around MakeMaker bugs.
Can't locate Term/ReadKey.pm in @INC (@INC contains: 
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at lib/Ask/Term.pm line 9.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at lib/Ask/Term.pm line 9.
Compilation failed in require at Makefile.PL line 201.
Line 9 of the file lib/Ask/Term.pm says:
Code:
use Term::ReadKey;
I'm guessing I need to install ReadKey? How do I do that?

The easiest way is with cpan:
perl -MCPAN -eshell

Then at the cpan> prompt:
install Term::ReadKey

I thought I tried that and it didnt work. I tried your command, however, and it worked, and the makefile worked.

Thanks.
