I tried to install palms novacom and for that I need alien to convert the
file to rpm, but I got dependency problems with perl. I use opensuse factory
x86_64 (last update was a couple of days ago)

Here's the output of zypper:

cassiopeia:~ # zypper install -f alien
Resolving package dependencies...

Problem: nothing provides perl = 5.10.0 needed by alien-8.78-1.2.noarch
Solution 1: do not install alien-8.78-1.2.noarch
Solution 2: break alien by ignoring some of its dependencies

Where is 'alien-8.78-1.2.noarch' from? openSUSE:Factory:Contrib has
alien-8.78-1.18.noarch and requires perl = 5.10.1.
