I'm guessing that Net::DNS 0.53 was installed earlier in the @INC Perl
search path than the RPM version, 0.59, so MailScanner finds it first.
will show you the @INC search path.
I don't know of an easy way of deleting a Perl module that was installed
with cpan. I'd probably do:
and then move all the matches I believed were part of the cpan
installation to a directory outside the Perl search path.
BTW, you can use rpm to determine if the matched file was installed by rpm:
rpm -qf /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Net/DNS.pm
will tell you which RPM the file was installed by.
