Installing BioPerl on Fedora
For the generic instructions, see: Installing BioPerl on Unix.
# yum install perl-bioperl
This will pull in all the necessary Perl dependencies. Alternatively the package can be installed via GUI package management front-ends, pirut (in F-8) and PackageKit (in F-9 and later), either by searching for bioperl, or browsing the Applications/Engineering group (see Pirut documentation and PackageKit documentation). Other bioperl subpackages such as bioperl-db and bioperl-network are not packaged as of 2008-06-04, but you are welcome to contact Alex Lancaster if you would like to help package or maintain these packages in Fedora.
