Fedora Core 9 + Nagios 3.0.6 + Nagiosgraph 1.2.1 - how to get the perl modules

Hello and Greetings to all in this forum,

I am new to linux and this is my first post in this forum too.

I have installed Nagios 3.0.6 on a Fedora Core 9 machine successfully. I will like to generate graphs for my collected data and after some googling, I come across this opensource application named "Nagiosgraph".

I read from the Install file (inside the Nagiosgraph package) that I will need to install the following prerequisite perl modules: "perl-cgi" and "perl-rrdtools" before I can install Nagiosgraph.

I cannot get the above-mentioned package by trying the below commands:
yum install perl-cgi
yum install perl-rrdtools
as it will return that no such package is found.
I then try googling for these packages and come across something that looks similar perl (FCGI) but am unable to find the packages with the exact names for Fedora Core 9 (I can find for other distributions like Red Hat 9).

Please advice
1) any idea on where to get the "perl-cgi" and "perl-rrdtools" modules beside using YUM?
2) if a package's name looks similar (e.g. perl-cgi vs perl(FCGI)), how can we tell that whether they are even the same package, besides trial and error?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I managed to generate rrd files in the /usr/local/nagios/nagiosgraph/rrd folder and seen my first graphs. This is after I have installed perl (FCGI) and rrdtools. I do not even need to install perl-rrdtools. It might be that rrdtools for Fedora already come with the required perl modules.

And if you want to see all the 'perl-CGI**' packages :

# yum search perl-cgi

( I have about 20 different in my repo )
