Bastille and Perl-Tk

What is the easiest way to install the Perl Tk Module. I have RedHat 9.0 and have tried many different methods-make, make install etc. All with errors-one of the C files was not even complete. It ended with a if(bla bla bla) {
That was the end of the script line number 165???
Finally I tried to rpm it and the list of dependencies is overwhelming.
I can't find it on the RedHat Distro Cd so I was wondering if anyone else has dad any luck.
p.s I need it for Bastille...

do you have apt4rpm?

There is a repository for rh9, and it has a lot of pkgs that arent in the distro and it handles dependencies.

Bastille and Perl Tk

No I don't . I followed the link and it seemed harder to install that than Perl Tk. Thanks for the link. I guess there is no easy way. Oh well...

I was having this problem (a bunch of missing dependencies). There is a link to a chart at the Bastille homepage down by the install intructions:

(The links don't go to the right pages, but after a bit of searching I found these pages: (install this one first)
This is perl-tk

Then you can install bastille. (note: I didn't have to install perl-curses either)

Good Luck

Hi, please suggest me how to install the perl-Tk module on the "Wind river platform".

Thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions.

Hah! You are unlikely to get replies here, you're right. For the sake of those who follow, the Wind-River discussion continues here.
