Issues with CPAN
Message ID:
I've a fresh install of Red Hat 8.0 with Perl 5.8.0 and I need to 
install some code to facilitate barcoding, specifically Code 128.  Using 
CPAN I was able to install the Barcode::Code128 module.  However, the 
documentation for the Barcode::Code128 module indicates that the GD 
module is necessary for creating barcode graphics.  When I attempted to 
install the GD module I received the following error:

> Warning: prerequisite Math::Trig 1 not found.

Upon searching the perl directories, I found that the Math/ 
exists in /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/Math/  

Is this the module it's looking for?  If so, does anyone have any ideas 
why the install of GD fails?  If not, which module is it looking for?

Thanks. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
