I spent several hours but unable to install CPAN Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA module. It's required for Postfix's dkimproxy add-on.

What I do is to run the following command in the shell:

$ perl -MCPAN -e 'install Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA'

When I run this command, several lines displayed and at the end, this is displayed:

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

    Crypt::OpenSSL::Random
Shall I follow them and prepend them to the queue
of modules we are processing right now? [yes] 

Then I hit enter (yes) and tens of lines generated with error. At the end I get this:

What am I doing wrong? Please guide me. Thanks.

Just came across this problem myself on CentOS 5.4 I didn't have openssl-devel installed! So running:
yum install openssl-devel
fixed it for me

You're missing a header somewhere. Above what you posted in the output you should see a reference to a missing .h file. Figure out what package provides that particular header and you're one step closer. Lather...Rinse...Repeat, eventually it will compile :)

Looking more at your post you should probably install Crypt::OpenSSL::Random and try again. –  d34dh0r53 Jan 28 '10 at 23:21
    
Hi, thanks for your reply. It seems that Crypt::OpenSSL::Random is causing the problem. Whenever I try to install this module with perl -MCPAN -e 'install Crypt::OpenSSL::Random' it generates errors I have pasted above. Any ideas? I am unable to install dkimproxy for this reason :(((( –  Willy Jan 30 '10 at 16:46
    
Paste the full output of the installation of Crypt::OpenSSL::Random. –  d34dh0r53 Feb 1 '10 at 22:01

Odd, I have similar installed on Debian Squeeze, and this module always fails.

perl Makefile.PL

Warning: prerequisite Crypt::OpenSSL::Random 0 not found. Writing Makefile for Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA

..but I cannot find the exact package you refer to. ii libcrypt-openssl-bignum-perl 0.04-2 Access OpenSSL multiprecision integer arithmetic libraries ii libcrypt-openssl-dsa-perl 0.13-4 module which implements the DSA signature verification system ii libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl 0.25-1+b1 Perl module providing basic RSA functionality ii libcrypt-openssl-x509-perl 1.4-1 Perl extension to OpenSSL's X509 API

Yup, that fixed my problem too on a Debian box.

Ran Aptitude, and then did a search for "openssl" and saw the lib-openssl package, and installed it.

Re-ran CPAN, did the install Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA and everything went smoothly.

Fixed my problem too for Ubuntu, but needed libengine-tpm-openssl.

Ran again:

$ sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA'

and it went ok.
