Well i'm pretty sure it's on the install disks, so when you are installing Mandrake and up to the point in choosing your packages just select the perl package, it should be in the development tools category or something....

If you are already finished with your install, and need to install something, plug in your install disc, mount it, and browse it. Locate the RPM for the package you want, and install it with Mandrake's Software Manager.

Cool

Easier than that! Since this is Mandy we're talking about... open up Mandrake Control Center, go to 'Install Software' and search for perl. If it comes up, then you can install it, and it'll tell you which CDs to put in... and it'll install it for you, dependancies and all! If nothing comes up, then back to MCC and choose 'Uninstall Software'. Search for perl... if anything comes up, then you know perl is already installed. Quit and do nothing else in that program.

For sure Mandy is easy! In this case, start sofware manager from the configuration drop down menu, select the 'installed' tab and type 'perl' in the search field! You see if it is installed or not! if not click the 'installable' tab, do the same and install perl! Dead easy! Even me, I could do it!!!!!

In Mandy 8.0, 8.1 and 8.2 the Software Manager allowed you to search through what could be and what was installed nice and easily. Now, in Mandy 9.0, however, they are two seperate apps. rpmdrake and rpmdrake-remove. I liked it as it was...

Yeah, I thought that was the case, that's why I noted it so that others that are using 9.0 don't get confused. I liked it as it was, you could search both at the same time nice and easily. I'm with you, Jargon

Sometimes I don't understand why people want to change what is nice to use and what made linux so easy to install! Just for the sake of changing or what? Reminds me M$!
