perl modules failed dependencies


i'm trying to get spamassassin setup but I keep running into this

[root@mail root]# rpm -Uvh perl-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm spamassassin-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm spamassassin-tools-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:
perl(DBI) is needed by perl-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.0.1-1
perl(Date::Manip) is needed by spamassassin-tools-3.0.1-1
perl(Parse::Syslog) is needed by spamassassin-tools-3.0.1-1
perl(Statistics:istributions) is needed by spamassassin-tools-3.0.1-1

I already have the modules DBI, Date::Manip, Parse::Syslog, and Statistics:istributions installed. Is there something I need to do? like reload perl module database or something?

have you upgraded perl recently? if so you may find that those modules are sitting in the tree for the old version of perl, so can't be seen.

nope I dont remember that I did.. It's current version is 5.8.0. I usually avoid touching perl install/upgrades since I have the worst luck w/ it.

use CPAN. It's a much easier way to work with installing and updating perl modules


use:

perl -MCPAN -e -shell
