    Hi people

    Would appreciate your help regarding above.
    1. yum install fileutils
    The response is
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do

    2.perl -MCPAN -e shell
    Has the error
    Warning: links not found in PATH
    Where is your links program? []

    Is links part of fileutils ? Which yum repositary ?

    Please help
    Many thanks
    Cheers

    This means that the package is already installed. :)

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    yum search links
    here?

    Ok, just downloaded it and had a look.
    Please try
    Code:
    yum install elinks
    then run
    Code:
    which links
    afterwards. It should then show you the path to the links program.

    /usr/bin/links

    Result of links -version
    ELinks 0.10.3 (built on Jun 10 2005 19:30:04)

    Features:
    Standard, IPv6, gzip, bzip2, Cascading Style Sheets, Protocol (File, FTP, HTTP, SMB, URI rewrite, User protocols),
    SSL (OpenSSL), MIME (Option system, Mailcap, Mimetypes files), LED indicators,
    Bookmarks, Cookies, Form History, Global History

    After executing links please see attachment.

    Seem to be a wrong links.

    If so could it be a bug ? Could it be asking for link instead of links ?

    What's the problem now? :confused:

    links has been installed, and you can now run
    Code:
    perl -MCPAN -e shell
    again.
