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 installed F-Prot on my file/print server running Slackware 10. When I try to run update.pl I get an error from CPAN telling me to install HTTP Request. I can run the scan from CLI no problem there, but when I try to run update.pI from my crontab or the CLI I still get the same error. I run CPAN and re-install all module, still get the same error. I re-install Perl and I still get the same error.
Any idea has to what I am doing wrong, Am I missing a step? Any one knows if there is a problem between CPAN and Slack 10?
I ran CPAN once more so I could give the exact error here it is;
Failed 1/41 test scripts, 97.56% okey. 1/761 subtests failed, 99.87% okay.
make: *** [ test } Error 255
/usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
make test had returned a bad status, won't install without force
I did try installing using force and I still get the same error
I was really trying to found out if I was going something wrong but from your post, I can see that others had the same problem. I guess I will write the script to get it going. Thanks again for the info.
Just to let you know. I finally was able to get F-Prot check-updates.pl running. All I can say is that I was doing everything right just not often enough!!!! I had to run the following from the CPAN shell 5 times before it worked.
