trouble upgrading perl

I can’t get perl updated. I get a long list of errors in the “Transaction Check Error”. They all seem to be of the form /path/to/ from install of perl-5.8.8-38.el5.x86_64 conflicts with file from package perl-5.8.8-32.el5_7.6.i386

Any suggestions?


Take a peek at the article titled “Why Is 32bit Perl installed on my 64bit CentOS System” here:

Thanks. That was the info I needed. I had added the extras repository (I think for something phpMyAdmin needed) which wanted to install the 32 bit version when I issued the yum install perl command, so instead I issued yum upgrade perl which then went ahead and only upgraded the 64 bit version.
