Im working to update my various clients to use the latest version of Amanda. The installs work great for RHEL6 but fails on v5 with the following errors:
# yum localinstall amanda-backup_client-3.3.5-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm Loaded plugins: dellsysid, rhnplugin, security This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.

I’ve tried using
package-cleanup and the
--skip-broken param but neither get any further than this. I’ve also tried using CPAN to find/ install this perl(JSON). The module appears to install but doesn’t get me any further with this.
In RHEL 6, the
perl-JSON package is included with the distribution, but in RHEL 5 it is not. For RHEL 5 you can get it from the EPEL repository, which you don’t seem to have installed.
