Try the MailScanner install with the rpm -e stuff disabled in the install 

If i do this with MailScanner current on a Fedora 11 it breaks the 
complete install. It will remove a lot of perl packages before it starts 
installing (rpm -e) and then you get stuff like this.

You can install Filesys via yum but after a MailScanner install run they 
are gone and stuff is broken.

The rpm -e isnt ok Jules :)
