What are you trying to install? Have you setup your repositories via http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and tried to install it through the package management system first?

Yes, urpmi doesn't recognise tk.pm as a package. I'm trying to install a perl module. Shouldn't it be self-contained?

tk.pm is a file name, not a package name. The Mandrake package is called 'perl-Tk' and its in main so its either on your CDs or on the full main repository you can get access to through easyurpmi. So just install the package and save yourself the trouble of trying to compile it.

Drat!

I should have stated how I solved my problem (both for others benefit and for my own when I reinstalled and no longer had the program installed.)

I'm trying to install tk.pm; tried using urpmi but it doesn't have perl-tk as a package. (Do I need to change repositories?)

What's CPAN webpage? I've tried googling and I guess I don't remember what the Perl Module repository is called.

It's called perl-Tk (perl-Tk-804.027-4mdk.i586.rpm) and its in the main repository. If you just downloaded the CDs or DVD you will not have the full main repo so you have to goto easyurpmi and setup access to it through a mirror.
