This is not really a Slackware dependency; it's a Perl modules issue.
Installing the necessary Perl modules with CPAN should work:
~# perl -MCPAN -e shell
Run the above command as root. If you've never used CPAN before, you'll be guided through some configuration steps. The defaults should be fine. One you're done, use the install
command to download and install the missing modules:
The above was tested and found to work on Slackware 14.0.
As for RRDTool, the main site is here
. It's a (relatively) simple matter of downloading the source and running ./configure && make && make install
. This should work (again, you will need to be root to perform the final install step):
wget -q -O - http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/pub/rrdtool-1.4.8.tar.gz | tar xzv
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc && make && make install
(As RRDTool can be considered a shared component, I usually install directly to /usr
. A good argument can be made for installing to /usr/local
instead, in order to separate it from "native" Slackware components. Others prefer to create a subdirectory under /opt
. In any case, just change the --prefix
parameter to point to your directory of choice.)
