Have you checked where that RPM installed the module? IO is included
in Perl itself, I'm guessing you have 1.22. If the RPM with IO 1.2301
installed in site/vendor/lib/share or whatever is used for your OS it
might not be used due to Perl's INC (search path). Here's the INC from
the Ubuntu system I'm currently on:


If you do "find /usr -name" I guess you will find the included
IO in one of the early directories with the version number in them.
Your newly installed IO will be in one of the directories used later
in the INC. That's why it wasn't used. When you install with CPAN it
overwrites the standard modules which solved your problem but not in
the nicest way. :-)
