I cannot update Perl to 5.8.8 because all it does is spin it's wheels searching for dependencies. It gets to about 40% and doesn't get past that. I have to kill the process to quit the Updater program. Here's the package info:
Issued 2008-09-05 10:41:29
Description - apply bless/overload fixes from upstream (U31996, U32018, U32019, U32025)
This fixes bugzilla 379791 and 460095 for Fedora 8 (Fedora 9+ are not affected by this problem). This update does not close/touch those bugs, because they are filed against RHEL.
