[Tex/LaTex] Problem with TexLive installation on Fedora 17 to 20


I just upgraded to Fedora 17 and tried to install TeX Live, as usually, by downloading the install script, install-tl from tug.org. When I run


I get this output:

[giorgos@desktopCosmos install-tl-20120511]$ ./install-tl

Can't locate loadable object for module Digest::MD5 in @INC
(@INC contains: ./tlpkg /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm line 198
Compilation failed in require at tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm line 198.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm line 198.
Compilation failed in require at ./install-tl line 53.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./install-tl line 53.

MD5.pm, however is already installed i.e. when I run

[giorgos@desktopCosmos install-tl-20120511]$ perl -MCPAN -e 'install Digest::MD5'

Going to read '/home/giorgos/.cpan/Metadata'
  Database was generated on Thu, 14 Jun 2012 00:27:03 GMT
Digest::MD5 is up to date (2.52).

Also, I tried to copy MD5.pm to @INC' s path and still I get the same result.

The problem persists in Fedora 20 as well.

Best Answer

You need the package perl-Digest-MD5

sudo yum install perl-Digest-MD5

After a Fedora 20 default installation, I also found that I needed wget

sudo yum install wget

Now you can install

sudo ./install-tl
