in reply to RRDs Installation problem

First, download the source here.

Second, install using

./configure --with-gnu-ld, make, make install, (do your system's ldcon +fig. The libs are in /usr/local/rrdtool-1.3.1/lib).

Third, cd to ./rrdtool-1.3.1/bindings/perl-shared.

Fourth, run perl Makefile.PL, make, make test, make install.

Fifth, RRDs is installed.

Sixth, run cpan RRD::Simple

Seventh, done!

Update: if t/32 fails, do force install.

    No, don't do that on a Debian system. Use the Debian provided packages, or compile a complete perl suite together with modules in /opt or /usr/local. Debian system tools rely heavily on perl, and you may break your system by overwriting modules with different versions that the package manager isn't aware of.
