[edit] Errors

[edit] Can't locate Proc/WaitStat.pm in @INC

This happens for Centos/Fedora. Fix:

perl -MCPAN -e "install Proc::WaitStat"

Then press ENTER half a million times (28 actually) and select continent/country when it asks.

[edit] Can't locate MIME/Types.pm in @INC

perl -MCPAN -e "install MIME::Types"
