Hello rpmforge,

  perl-DBD-SQLite from RPMforge breaks when using perl-DBI from CentOS 
Base (which was former in the RPMforge Repository). To fix this i had to 
Install perl-DBI from the RPMforge Extras Repository.

The problem is, that no dependency messages appear. And everything looks 
fine until your application suddenly breaks.

Further, i can't find any documentation how to use RPMforge Extras and 
the idea behind on the RPMforge website.

Should i write one?

On a fresh installed CentOS 5.5 with enabled RPMforge this occurs:

[root at centos ~]# perl -e 'require DBD::SQLite'
DBI version 1.57 required--this is only version 1.52 at 
line 5.

name = Red Hat Enterprise $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag
#baseurl = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/$basearch/dag
mirrorlist = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/mirrors-rpmforge

[root at centos ~]# yum info perl-DBI
Name       : perl-DBI
Arch       : i386
Version    : 1.52
Release    : 2.el5

[root at centos ~]# yum info perl-DBD-SQLite
Name       : perl-DBD-SQLite
Arch       : i386
Version    : 1.29
Release    : 1.el5.rf
