    I'm still not sure on how to use rpmbuild with the file I have. when I typed in man rpmbuild, it gave me a big dirty +200 line of info and stuff. How would I go about opening the file with it?

    Install the RPM like is says here
    this will place the source package on your hard drive, then install the source like it sais in the above link;

    Edit: the unsatisfied Perl-devel means you have to install Pearl-devel on youe system for the program you are trying to install to work, try looking in www.rpmfind.net
