Question Dependency question...

When I try to install a program using "program installer" in Mandrake. (I'm using mandrake 9.1 KDE) it gives me the dependency error:

Conflicts were detected:
Perl(Fcntl) is needed by xscreensaver
perl(POSIX) is needed by xscreensaver
perl(Socket) is needed by xscreensaver
perl(Time::Local) is needed by xscreensaver
perl(bytes) is needed by xscreensaver
perl(diagnostics) is needed by xscreensaver
perl(strict) is needed by xscreensaver
redhat-logos - 1.1.1 is needed by xscreensaver

I think i can get red hat logos, but i know which perl rpm to install to get the above functions...Any guru's help would be highly appreciated....

Get a Mandrake version, the RedHat one will be compiled for the different position and configuration of RH libraries etc, it probably wont work.
