You will likely need perl's CPAN working for installing perl modules. You can insure it is configured by running:

perl -MCPAN -e shell

If that command does not give you a shell prompt, then you will be prompted to configure. You must do so as root, or via sudo (as shown).

sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell

After configuration, you will return to a prompt and the command "exit" will get you back to your shell.
