    how about (.rpm) perl module for both (perl-XML-LibXML,  perl-XML-LibXSLT) RHEL5 64 bits, version. is it available with same dependencies?

    Assisted Solution

    I had a quick look, rpm package only seems to be built form the latest version. Installing the modules directly, as described abive, should not cause any problems.
