I'm using Mandrake 9.1.
This comes with Perl 5.8.0.

I'd like to upgrade to Perl 5.8.4.
I'd rather do it through the RPM or the URPMI mechanism, in
order to have a consistent database. I've managed to find
perl-5.8.4-2mdk.src.rpm on the net, but I failed to properly
install it (it wants dependencies which I cannot seem to

Can someone, please give me "dumb user" examples how to
install this from the srouce rpms? say, using the rpm
