Installing Padre on Gentoo


Installation using the Package Manager

Padre 0.60 is available in Gentoo: package page

emerge app-editors/padre

Installation from CPAN

Gentoo has Wx version 0.9702


   g-cpan -i Padre

should work but you need a threaded perl. If you have trouble installing please file a bug here or on depending where do you think the problem is.

More detailed instructions:

  1. Make sure your perl is compiled with USE="ithreads" ( generally in /etc/make.conf ) and emerge perl
  2. If you don't have g-cpan installed, emerge app-portage/g-cpan
  3. g-cpan -i Padre

g-cpan often is incapable of properly detecting dependencies. Installing from source often works better:

   emerge dev-perl/Alien-wxWidgets dev-perl/wxperl
   perl -MCPAN -e 'install Padre'

Installing Padre from the CPAN shell may upgrade core modules provided by the core Gentoo perl install, so be prepared to downgrade those modules when emerging other packages or upgrading the system. A 'force install Padre' afterwards can help upgrade the conflicts again.

Also, one or more of the modules may require perl 5.10. This is not a part of any portage tree as of yet and can only be found in the perl overlay. See Gentoo Bug#206455.
