[CentOS] Re: Problems with perl upgrading CentOS 5.1 to 5.2

As I said in the e-mail, I reinstalled all CentOS 5.2 perl* packages that
I had installed.

I have no idea about perl and how to fight versus it. I only know:
   1) This system where a FC5 some years ago with no problem.
   2) I upgraded to CentOS 5 (a year ago) with no problem.
   3) I upgraded to CentOS 5.1 (some months ago) with no problem.
   4) I upgraded to CentOS 5.2 (some days ago) and I encounter this problem.

I think that in this process no exists any CentOS 4 packages installed. I
use "rpmforge" repository too (don't think this were the problem yet).

I remember I use CPAN to install (some months ago) 2 or three packages
that weren't in repos. Perhaps, some help, could be how to "reinit" the
perl configuration to original values (includes, for example). I don't
know how to use CPAN really.

These are the list of "*perl*" packages I have installed:
