root@localhost:~/csf# sh

Configuring for OS

Running csf generic installer

Installing generic csf and lfd

Check we're running as root

Checking Perl modules...
Can't locate LWP/ in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/csf /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at (eval 22) line 2.

You need to install the missing perl modules and then install cxs

You need to install libwww-perl.

sudo aptitude install libwww-perl


sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::LWP'


tar xzf libwww-perl-6.04.tar.gz
cd libwww-perl-6.04
perl Makefile.PL
sudo make install
