Ok, now that I know about the requirement for tweaks I can cope with it.
The goal wasn't actually HTML::Tree, it was some other package (I forget which
at this point, but I'll probably trip over it later today) that wasn't in
Fedora. I tried cpanspec on it, but it had dependencies. So, in the haze of
perl-module-install fever, I just kept on doing cpanspec on the dependencies,
and on their dependencies, and so on and so forth. Sometimes I'm alert enough
to try yum, but I'm also administering some Macs with fink, and rewriting
Some::Random::Module to perl-Some-Random-Module or some-random-module-pm588 or
some-random-module-pm586 is sometimes more than I can handle after the
And then there's CPAN, which takes care of all dependencies, if I abandon rpm
package management. I saw there's a CPANPLUS::Dist::RPM module that would
supposedly generate RPMs, but I couldn't get it to work last time I tried it.
I tell ya, this death-of-a-thousand-paper-cuts makes me want to quit and take
up a job running a laundromat.
