I'm trying to install a missing module for Perl 5.8.8 on my SLES10SP3 it's the perl-Module-compat which is needed by munin-common-1.4.5. I've tried to install it with cpan and searched for a rpm, both with no result.

install error: rpm -i munin-common-1.4.5-2.el5.noarch.rpm - error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.8.8) is needed by munin-common-1.4.5-2.el5.noarch

Does any one have any experience with this?

Thanks in advance for your help

Greetz,
Marcel.

Check your perl version.

Is it 5.8.8 or higher?

Yast reports 5.8.8-14.10 - It's a first time install for munin, so I download this version. Meanwhile I've found something on the Novell Forums to install version 1.2.5-4.1. Could try this one, but have no clue of the differences between those.

Looks like you are installing a RHEL or Vemula package and sometimes dependencies might not match

That thought has crossed my mind, because of the el5 in the package-name. Probably only has to do where files will be put. But ... you might be right:)

perl -MCPAN -e 'install packagename" will go through the configuration/install process including retrieving and installing any dependencies.

@arnold: tried that one; did not work. In none of the mirrors it's available. You need a RPM for this.

But thanks for the sugestion:)

The strange thing is that you have SLES10 yet you downloaded and tried to install a RedHat package.

In case you plan on getting/installing the newer version:

That's what samdart also pointed out, and was aware of that. Did look @ the munin files on sourceforge, but no packages for sles10 unless I compile the source for it. And I did, with the same results ... missing dependencies for :module_compat_5.8.8.

Set up a vm with OpenSuse 11.3, no problem at all! So I guess it all has to do with a number of outdated packages on the SLES10SP3 distro.

Thanks again,
Marcel.
