I'am running debian on my server and want to install the CPAN module XML::RSS. But I get this error:

http://pastebin.com/5syPaQfe (Pastebin because it's really long)

I'am trying to install RequestTracker and installed the dependancies with make fixdeps. The only dep missing is XML::RSS.

Why don't you just install using package management? XML::RSS Perl module is available in the package libxml-rss-perl.

$ apt-get install libxml-rss-perl

And it will resolve all dependencies for you. :)

For others you might need, just search your package manager:

$ apt-cache search XML::RSS
