In the rpm database.
Only in the rpm database.
rpm's view of what is installed is completely dependant on the rpm
database - it expects to be managing all the packages on the system.
Basically if you are using rpm to manage your system do not install
any (system - you can do what you like in your home directory) software
by any means other than rpm.
If you want to package Tie::IxHash as an rpm (and you cannot find a
package for your distribution) then have a look at cpanspec
[you will need an rpm build environment as well = I prefer to do that
within mock - http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Projects/Mock , but you
could just use rpmbuild on your system]
