Fedora 14 - perl not installed

All,

I have a CD with the Fedora 14 ISO burned. It doesn't appear to have perl installed on it. (Open a terminal, type "perl" and press Enter, and get the "Command not found." response.)

Further, once I install to the hard drive and boot from it, run the updates and let them complete, and reboot, I still don't seem to have perl and I can't find a package for fc14 that would install perl.

I must be the only one having this problem because I don't see any references to this and somebody would have noticed by now, but is there anyone who can tell me what I might have done wrong?

Thanks,
-Dan

Follow-up.

True, perl was not installed per default. (Not sure why...) However, it turned out the failure to find the installation package was b/c my place of employment uses an internal mirror. Their repo list file failed to include the "testing" subdirectory for the fc14 stuff.

Re: Fedora 14 - perl not installed

To install perl and if you want to do perl development, you can use the command

Code:
yum grouplist "Perl Development"
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Group Process
updates/group_gz                                         | 408 kB     00:00     
updates-testing/group_gz                                 | 408 kB     00:00     
Installed Groups:
   Perl Development
Done
to install perl and a lot of useful additions. To install it that way, instead of "grouplist" use "groupinstall"

Re: Fedora 14 - perl not installed

Just curious...does anyone know why perl isn't installed per default? That's such a standard component of Linux systems...

Re: Fedora 14 - perl not installed

Hi,

Might be lack of space on the LiveCD (LZMA not used there yet)? Or, still Python is the long-time preferred interpreter for RH, so they might have decided to leave Perl out of the LiveCD.

Just my 2 c.

WWell,

Re: Fedora 14 - perl not installed

¡Hola!

If you write:
yum --showduplicates list perl

You get the disposable and installed versions:

.........
Paquetes instalados
perl.i686 4:5.12.3-141.fc14 @updates
Paquetes disponibles
perl.i686 4:5.12.2-136.fc14 fedora
perl.i686 4:5.12.3-141.fc14 updates

Then install perl with:
yum install selected version
yum install perl-4:5.12.3.141.fc14.i686

Saludos

Re: Fedora 14 - perl not installed

Hi,

Easy: because RedHat has long favoured/developed Python (that's what Anaconda and many other system tools are written in - e.g., many from the system-config* tools). It is still nice they have not dropped perl entirely.

WWell,
