Perl RPM Cannot Install on CentOS 6.3


perl-core-5.10.1-127.el6.i686 requires perl-IO-Compress-Bzip2

I'm using CentOS 6.3 Gnome and using the software update function to update the system.

perl-IO-Compress-2.052-1.el6.rfx.noarch requires perl(Compress::Raw::Zlib) = 2.052
spamassassin-3.3.2-4.el6.rfx.i686 requires perl(Mail::SPF)
perl-core-5.10.1-127.el6.i686 requires perl-IO-Compress-Bzip2 : Success - empty transaction

Many perl modules will not update and it boils down to the message in the first line.

I went to the RPMFIND web site and tried to download/install the Bzip2 rpm as indicated but the CentOS system says it can't install this module/file because the 'perl-io-compress-bzip2' module isn't available.

This seems like a catch22 situation. It needs to be there in order to install it.

How can I resolve this issue?

Any help will really be appreciated.

Thanks

I guess you will have to uninstall the "non compatible" rpmforge packages.
Or wait with an update until rpmforge provides updates that are compatible.


If you uninstall spamassassin and perl-IO-Compress-Bzip2 (etc. etc.):
Disable rpmforge, and use the genuine CentOS packages.
'spamassassin' and 'perl-IO-Compress-Bzip2are' are available
from the CentOS Base repo.

Thank you for your response.

I only tried to go outside the CentOS enviornment after using the CentOS Gnome Software Update function built into CentOS.

Only after the normal CentOS update process failed did I try to see if I could possibly resolve the issue.

Being a newbie at this I really didn't know what to do further.

Thanks

you also might want to install AND CONFIGURE yes set up yum-Priorities plugin
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities

the incompatible repos are "better" in 6 than was in 5 BUT they are still there .

yum-Priorities i consider as a MUST HAVE ,a 100% must install ( and configure )plugin
and heed ALL the warnings about third party repos
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
