Hope this is the right place for this question, but please let me know 
if its not.

I'm trying to install rt via yum.  I've followed the directions here: 

Basically it said to add this to my yum.conf:

--- cut here ---
name=eXtra packages, updates and rt itself
--- end here ---

... and then run this:
yum install rt rt-mail-dispatcher

So, the first few times I ran it, I got messages telling me that various 
perl modules that I needed were not installed, and one by one I grabbed 
them from cpan.org and installed them.

Well, there is one called Mail::SpamAssassin that it wanted, that I have 
installed, that I have verified in perl is already installed and seems 
to be accessable.  However, this is what yum gives me:

[root at notphilo emily]# yum install rt rt-mail-dispatcher
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: eXtra packages, updates and rt itself
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Resolving dependencies
......Unable to satisfy dependencies
Package rt needs perl(Mail::SpamAssassin), this is not available.
[root at notphilo emily]#

Grr! So, I know its there, but yum isn't picking up on that I guess.  Is 
there some way for me to tell it to ignore dependancies, or get around 
this somehow..?

Thanks for any info!
