Task::Kensho RPMs

[ #38730 ]

One of the first concrete outputs from the Enlightened Perl Organisation has been Task::Kensho - a CPAN module which exists to list a number of other CPAN modules that modern Perl programmers should consider using. if you install Task::Kensho then all of the included modules will automatically be pulled down from CPAN and installed.

I don't install my modules from CPAN. As I live in the Red Hat world, I like to install RPMs of modules. And I build RPMs for modules that aren't already available in that format (and then I make them available to everyone).

So last night I created an RPM for Task::Kensho. This also involved building RPMs for about half of the modules it include which didn't already exist as RPMs in the standard repostories. Those RPMs are now available from my repository so installing them all could be as simple as sudo yum install perl-Task-Kensho. Of course, you can also install individual packages using the appropriate yum command.

Currently the RPMs are only available for Fedora 10. I'll build versions for Centos 5 over the next couple of days.

  • I've been planning to do something similar for Debian/Ubuntu, but I'm lacking time right now (also, I'd have to upgrade my Debian server to lenny first).
