# yum install perl-Padre

Apparently, after this padre will still complain

libwx_gtk2u_stc-2.8.so cannot  open shared object file

then also install

# yum install wxGTK-devel

Related bug, which should be fixed in future versions: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=656317

In older releases of Fedora is impossible to update because of Fedora update policy. In case you'd like to have latest Padre, you need update to the latest Fedora or use CPAN installation install Padre from CPAN.

Older releases

Older releases are not supported, but if you insist on using them install Padre and wxGTK-devel, which should workaround bugs.

# yum install perl-Padre wxGTK-devel

Fedora-13 includes Padre-0.64 with Wx Version: 0.92 wxWidgets 2.8.11.

Fedora-12 includes Padre-0.64 with Wx Version: 0.92 wxWidgets 2.8.11.

Manual rebuild

It is possible rebuild latest Padre source rpm on your computer, but you will need rebuild also _a lot_ of dependencies. It's not recommended and it might be better to use CPAN. If you still like to rebuild it, you can try:

Download source rpm http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=6964
yum install rpm-build
rpmbuild --rebuild perl-Padre-yourversion.src.rpm
