    I've got a centos5 box that at least has a dependency issue or a corrupt 
rpm database. I am open to suggestions as to how to proceed. I have added 
some extra repositories to my yum configuration, centosplus, rpmforge, 
atrpms, and the kbs repos. I haven't been having issues with installs or 
upgrades until today when i ran a yum update, and got a missing dependency 
error for zaptel, a perl dependency. I've tried doing a yum install for the 
package, but no success. The error is below and i am open to suggestions.

#yum update
