This question already has an answer here:

I am facing problems while trying to install TeXLive 2012 on fedora. I did the following-

  1. Unzipped the package.
  2. Navigated to the location of install-tl.
  3. Typed in ./install-tl

I got the following message

Can't locate Digest/MD5.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ./tlpkg /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm line 199.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at tlpkg/TeXLive/TLUtils.pm line 199.
Compilation failed in require at ./install-tl line 53.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./install-tl line 53.

What am I doing wrong? How do to I fix this?

Try installing perl-Tk and perl-Digest-MD5 first with yum install perl-Tk perl-Digest-MD5, then try the TeX Live installer again. :) – Paulo Cereda Feb 28 '13 at 11:59
Use the packages provided by Fedora. Fedora 18 ships TeXlive 2012 out of the box, fully integrated with the system. – vonbrand Feb 28 '13 at 20:21
@vonbrand True, but if you want a 'vanilla' install (say so you have tlmgr available to update every day), then I'd image the issue is the same. – Joseph Wright Mar 2 '13 at 8:43

Try this guide; I only tested it on Fedora before writing the article (but that is obviously enough here): http://latex-community.org/component/content/article/66-latex-distributions-texlive/466-texlive-linux
