Dear All,

 I Have the following setup running fine for about a year or so on a
  single server.
 Centos 5 (final)
 DNS bind-9.3.4-6.0.2.P1.el5_2 as my DNS server
  sendmail-8.13.8-2.el5 as my mail server
 MailScanner ver 4.66.5
  jules easy package Clam-0.92-SA-3.2.4
 all the above is working fine .

Now i wanted to upgrade my Centos to the latest (5.3) with yum upgrade but
when i ran the command

yum would not finish it gave errors as below

file /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Math/BigFloat.pm from install of
>>> perl-5.8.8-18.el5_3.1 conflicts with file from package
>>> perl-Math-BigInt-1.86-1

googling arround i found these errors are caused by 3 rd party perl modules
which being installed which guess from MS installtion since i downloaded
the MS package from MailScanner site and ran the install.sh script .

right now i have downloaded the latest MS form the MS site and also lates
Spamassasin clamAV jules package and installed as per the upgrade
instructions and everything is perfect and working great.

But i need to upgrade my os to 5.3
aprrecite any help and suggestions . is there any way i could upgrade the
OS bypassing these errors
