where is tkx?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hi All,

I am trying to run the first tutorial over on:

  use Tkx;

         -text => "Hello, world",
         -command => sub { Tkx::destroy("."); },


$ hello.pl
Can't locate Tkx.pm in @INC

But I can not find perl-Tkx-button

$ yum whatprovides perl-Tkx*
No matches found

cpan i /Tkx/ gives me

# cpan Tkx
# cpan Tcl
Both crash:
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 2
   /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
//hint// to see the cpan-testers results for installing this module, try:
   reports VKON/Tcl-1.02.tar.gz
Running make install
   make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

So why can YUM not find it?  Why can't CPAN compile it?

What am I missing?

Many thanks,
