I can't imagine how to resolve this issue, but it's certainly becoming
an important one.  We're running RHEL 3, which is old enough that many
perl modules are horribly out-of-date.  Unfortunately there doesn't
seem to be any clean way to update them, since using CPAN breaks the
RPM package management.  Are we expected to simply compile our own RPMs?

I don't think there is an easy answer to this, but hopefully some
developer will see this and think of a good solution.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-01-04 03:05:44 EST is one solution, and CPANplus will have
an interface to up2date.

Neither address the problem of very outdated perl modules hanging
around in RHEL3, with its long shelf life.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-05-17 19:45:42 EDT
CPAN is the wrong way to install stuff on RPM based distributions.  Please join
the fedora-perl-devel-list team to help in putting more perl CPAN modules into
Extras, which is the only non-fragile way of doing this.
