perl -v shows upgraded version but rpm shows lower version
Posted on 2008-10-02
I recently upgraded perl from 5.8.1-92 to 5.8.8. I have been trying to install rrdtool using apt-get but apparently perl version needs to be greater than 5.8.1.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
rrdtool: Depends: perl (>= 3:5.8.3) but 3:5.8.1-92 is to be installed
E: Broken packages
When I do perl -v
[root@chulu root]# perl -v
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i686-linux

[root@chulu root]# rpm -q perl
How can I get around this problem?
