As far as I can see, that's an RPM packaging error rather than a perl

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

As perl-IO-Compress is nowadays a part of core perl, you mustn't
install it.

Despite of the name, it *doesn't* provide perl(IO::Compress), so it
wouldn't help you anyways. (An IO::Compress perl module doesn't
seem to exist.)
