I’m trying to install perl modules on SLES 11 P3. I need perl-Crypt-Rijndael so that I can use SNMP version 3 with AES encryption.
Installing that package from the repository declares:
foo@sles-devel:~> sudo zypper in
Refreshing service 'SMT-https_mumble.

Problem: nothing provides perl(Test::Manifest) >= 1.14 needed by perl-Crypt-Rijndael-1.11-27.1.x86_64
Solution 1: do not install perl-Crypt-Rijndael-1.11-27.1.x86_64
Solution 2: break perl-Crypt-Rijndael-1.11-27.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

Nothing to do.

Perl-Test-Manifest doesn’t appear to be in the repository.

I’ve also tried to get cpan2dist working so that I can create the needed prerequisites on the fly, but there is no package for CPANPLUS::Dist::SUSE, and I’ve been unable to get it to install and work. Yes, I do have the SDK installed. I would appreciate any assistance.

Hi djmcdon1,

if you add that repository, instead of only installing a single file out of it, the dependents ought to get automatically pulled in.

Of course, this might lead to quite a number of RPMs being installed/changed, so better check if it actually does what you’re after, before hitting “y” :wink:


Better in this case to add the repository so it can pull in the
dependencies eg perl-Test-Manifest.
