Unable to install Perl module via CPAN


Freshly installed Fedora box going through a proxy to get to the internet, I get the following trying to do "install Tk". Any help would be great!

# cpan
Terminal does not support AddHistory.

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601)
ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')

happen.
