I just found the reason for this problem with a simple test script and a
Newer versions of DBD::SQLite need a DBI version of at least 1.57. The
rpmforge package *does* include this requirement. However, CentOS includes
DBI 1.52 and doesn't provide newer versions. As a good administrator I'm
using yum priorities and thus the software is locked at the CentOS version.
I would think that yum should not have upgraded perl-DBD-SQLite if it cannot
fulfill the requirement of perl-DBI >= 1.57. I will follow this up on the
CentOS list whether it has to be reported as a bug.
So, for anyone else using this module and priorities: you have to either
stay on version 1.14 or exclude perl-DBI from the base and updates repos
(which enables rpmforge to upgrade DBI to 1.607).
