Unhappy smokeping Can't locate in @INC

I am trying to install smokeping but keep failing because of this error:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/smokeping/lib /usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.0/lib/perl/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.0/lib/perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.0/lib/perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /usr/local/smokeping/lib/ line 40.

looks like you don't have installed. It's a perl module.

You could install with CPAN (as root)
perl -MCPAN -e "install Convert::BER"
Be prepared to answer a few questions if you have never run CPAN before.

or you might grab and install it manually from here but you may or may not need to satisfy some dependencies with this method.

SmokePing will likely list the required Perl modules and any other dependencies in the README/INSTALL files so probably best to read those first.

I did that and still getting the same errors.

I also install the rrdtool since that is what smokeping need and still that app won't work
