I found the actual problem. It was the MIME::Entity and i did a force 
install using CPAN.
I got past the make testdeps.

"make install" works as well but "make initialize-database" gives the 
following error

[root at fc rt-3.4.4]# make initialize-database
/usr/bin/perl //opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database --action init --dba 
root --prompt-for-dba-password
In order to create or update your RT database,this script needs to connect 
to your mysql instance on localhost as root.
Please specify that user's database password below. If the user has no 
password, just press return.

DBI connect(';host=localhost','root',...) failed: Access denied for user: 
'root at localhost' (Using password: NO) at //opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database 
line 101
Failed to connect to dbi:mysql:;host=localhost as root: Access denied for 
user: 'root at localhost' (Using password: NO) at 
//opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database line 101, <STDIN> line 1.
make: *** [initialize-database] Error 255

I am sure mysql is installed and running.
but when i do the following, error occurs as well.

[root at fc rt-3.4.4]# mysql
ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'root at localhost' (Using password: NO)

Any advice?

With Regards,

Try installing Pod::Tests, then run it again.
