Hi all,

I am getting the following error while trying to install mrtg on CentOS release 4.4 (Final)

`````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
yum install mrtg

--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: perl(URI) for package: mrtg

Error: Missing Dependency: perl(URI) is needed by package mrtg

`````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
URI seems to be installed, I have tried upcp too.. any help is appreciated.

Go on, have a guess
The missing perl module is not the issue.

You're seeing the problem due to a recent change by cPanel to have perl* in /etc/yum.conf exclude= list. yum won't install mrtg because there's an rpm dependency with the URI perl module rpm that yum requires with the version of perl it thinks you have installed.

You can work around this by forcing the mrtg through without the depnedency check as (as you have said) you have the latest URI perl module already installed via cpan instead of yum:

Code:
rpm -Uvh --nodeps http://mirror.centos.org/centos-4/4.4/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/mrtg-2.10.15-1.i386.rpm
