perl(strict) is needed by proftpd-1.2.9-1.9
i downloaded the file from the sites ftp did i do something incorrect.
You did it correctly, but the package needs others to work. Urpmi hides this and handles dependencies for you, with manual installation you need to install package after package. You'd need packages perl and openssl.
