Trying to install subversion on CentOS 5 server. "yum install subversion" runs into the prob of

Error: Missing Dependency: perl(URI) >= 1.17 is needed by package subversion-1.4.2-4.el5_3.1.i386 (base)
Error: Missing Dependency: perl(URI) >= 1.17 is needed by package subversion-1.4.2-4.el5_3.1.x86_64 (base)

Looking thru RPM repositories, it looks like there doesn't appear to be perl-URI for CentOS 5... Is there a way to install subversion for CentOS5 that doesn't require perl(URI) - or some other way to install CentOS5?

perl(URI) is provided by the perl-URI package in the base repo. Most likely it is excluded because your control panel or virtualization solution has perl-* packages excluded due to the fact that they interfere with their own packages. Contact your control panel or virtualization solution provider for a fix.
