If you are on CentOS, you are needing to run these commands:

sudo yum install perl-libwww-perl
sudo yum install perl-DBI
sudo yum install perl-DBD-MySQL
sudo yum install perl-GD

An easy way to find available packages in CentOS/Fedora is to use the yum search feature, like so:

sudo yum search <search term>

So if you are looking for the DBD::MySQL module for perl, you could do a search like this:

sudo yum search DBD
