Update: See comment from Dave Cross below for a safer method of installing CPAN modules on an RPM system.
The current wxPerl shipped with Fedora is Broken (version 0.91-1.fc11)… Still.
/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Wx/Wx.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Guse_safe_putenv_ptr
Remove it with
yum remove perl-Wx
I made sure I had the wxGTK-devel pacakage installed and the following other wx stuff.
Then I made sure I had cpan installed
yum install perl-CPAN Then from a root prompt I ran cpan Then inside cpan (after going through the initial configuration I did) upgrade cpan reload cpan # This took a long time install Wx # when prompted I said NOT to download # wxWidgets and to use the system version. install Wx::Demo # finally give it a berl wxperl_demo.pl
