Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=47]FAQ & Readme First[/url] is recommended for new users.

You should check what is in the global exclude list in /etc/yum.conf. A forum [url=https://www.centos.org/search.php?query=perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib&mid=30&action=showall&andor=AND]search[/url] shows lots of issues with this perl Compress group of packages. As the problem packages are from RPMforge (now [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=31652&forum=14&post_id=134934#forumpost134934]Repoforge[/url]) you might best ask on their mailing list, but it appears that perl-IO-Compress needs to be updated to use the new perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib.

You probably need to enable rpmforge-extras (perl-IO-Compress-2.034-1.el4.rfx.noarch.rpm).
