XML::Parser perl module is required


Hello members;

I was trying to compile many applications from source. For some of them, when I execute ./configure I receive this error:

configuration:error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool

I checked for perl. I have perl version 5.8.0 on slackware 9.1. I don't know perl. How can I make sure I have this module? And if it exists, How can I tell the bash (I guess bash) Where it is?

Thank you in advance.

extract then change to directory you extracted to and run:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr (if you are still using slackware)
make buildlib
make installlib
these apply to where i told you to get it from (latest file: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/e...ar.gz?download) can't be sure about the other bloke's link.

and it's a boy.

Thank you friends;
I did both ways but none worked. I installed both packages. Now I am sure that package exists, but cannot be found. I have a theory here: This package must be found either by "configure" script or perl. Unfortunately I am new to linux and I dont know shell scripting, thus I couldnt understand "configure" file. Sometime somewhere I read about an Environtment Variable that points to location of packages that are required for compiling apps. I dont remember the Var name, but I remember it starts with "PKG_". maybe setting that Var helps me. If you know anything about it I would appreciate you tell me.
Thank you.

-------------------------
P.S: I solved the problem. I had made a mistake in making package.

To properly install a perl module try the CPAN shell first

delia root # perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601)
ReadLine support enabled

cpan> install XML::Parser
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
CPAN: LWP::UserAgent loaded ok
Fetching with LWP:
ftp://archive.progeny.com/CPAN/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz

etc...

Sweet! The cpan shell is the only way to fly . Of course it will sometimes fail and then you have to either force it or install by hand. However that usually only happens when you are trying to get some obscure beta module and the author has written an incomplete or distro centric make file.
