Perl module dependency problem


I am trying to install mrtg--2.12.1-1.1.el3.test.rpm on my RHEL AS 3.0 machine, but I am getting the error

error: Failed dependencies:
perl(MRP::BaseClass) is needed by mrtg-2.12.1-1.1.el3.test

I downloaded and installed the above perl module using CPAN site with the command

perl -MCPAN -e shell

install MRP::BaseClass

Inspite of installing the above module, I am still getting the same message. How do I tell the system that the above module is installed ?

They want an RPM to be installed which provides that thing. Installing modules separately won't help. However, I can't find any packages that provides this, so this "mrtg" package that you got from Dag might be broken. RHEL comes with an "mrtg" package, so you should try that instead.
