Perl module Authen::PAM needed for PAM is not installed


I have installed CentOS 6.3 x64 minimal install. I did

Code:
yum update
Added the webmin repo according to the webmin instructions at www.webmin.org

Code:
yum update
yum install webmin
All OK.

Code:
service webmin status
gives

Code:
Webmin (pid 1217) is running
However I cannot access my webmin server from my workstation. In /var/webmin/miniserv.error I see this:

Code:
Perl module Authen::PAM needed for PAM is not installed : Can't locate Authen/PAM.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/libexec/webmin /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at (eval 11) line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 11) line 1.
So I did:

Code:
yum install gcc
yum install make
yum install pam-devel
Rebooted. Still not working. Any ideas?

You could try
Code:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
install Authen::PAM
exit
If you haven't used CPAN before, you may be prompted for some configuration parameters before the CPAN shell appears. You can safely answer 'yes' to the question about automatic configuration.

I'm no CentOS/RHEL expert, but it seems there's something wrong with your perl installation. I would recommend reinstalling perl and any related packages.

CentOS (6.3) : CPAN is a separate package.

# yum install perl-CPAN

And : 'perl-Authen-PAM' is in the EPEL.repo
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
"Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux"
# rpm -Uvh http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora-epel/6/i386...6-7.noarch.rpm
# yum install perl-Authen-PAM
