I installed perl 5.8.8 via cpan into /usr/local/lib earlier today, maybe
thats causing the lock but I only did that as a last resort as I was
getting this type of error trying to upgrade modules...weird
The most recent version "3.24" of the module "Text::ParseWords"
is part of the perl-5.8.8 distribution. To install that, you need to run
force install Text::ParseWords --or--
not sure how to remove that either.
Oh centos 4.5
