Re: [opensuse] perl module install question

I'm trying to install perl-IO-Compress from OBS, but it says I need perl

The strange thing is I have perl 5.14.2, so I'm confused. If anyone
can tell me what's going on, I'd appreciate it.
sudo zypper in perl-IO-Compress
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

Problem: perl-IO-Compress-2.036-2.1.noarch requires perl = 5.14.2, but
this requirement cannot be provided
Solution 1: do not install perl-IO-Compress-2.036-2.1.noarch
Solution 2: do not install perl-IO-Compress-2.036-2.1.noarch
Solution 3: break perl-IO-Compress by ignoring some of its dependencies

Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/3/c] (c):

As far as I can see, that's an RPM packaging error rather than a perl
packaging error, yes? In which case I can't help, and all I can suggest
is one or all of:
(1) poke around the RPM files and see what is going on
(2) check perl -V returns what you expect and that installing
IO::Compress from CPAN works (you can always delete it later)
(3) if nobody else replies, try reposting to this list with RPM or
zypper in the subject instead of perl
