Hi Kai,

I figured out why my MS install didn't want to start with perl-Compress-Zlib
1.42-1.fc6.  For some reason, MS didn't think that Scalar-List-Utils was
installed.  Once I re-installed Scalar-List-Utils-1.19, I was able to yum update
to perl-Compress-Zlib 1.42-1.fc6 and MS restarted without any hiccups.


Thanks for the tip/list about installing MS without any of the associated perl
modules.  I'll have to give that a try on a fresh test box when I get the chance.
