Hey all!

Today we will install  Crypt::blowfish –Perl Blowfish encryption module.









1)Trying with yum:

yum install Crypt::Blowfish

Get reject: No package perl-Crypt-Blowfish available.

OK let compile it ^_^.

# Download fresh package from

  • wget

# Untar it

  • tar zxf  Crypt-Blowfish-2.12.tar.gz

# Go into the dir

  • cd Crypt-Blowfish-2.12

# Now compile files

I get an error when trying make test

So just install gcc
