in reply to Error While installing perl

If you didn't install perl via package manager (rpm), it has no chance of knowing that perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.12.3) is installed. Solution: use cpan to install modules instead of pre-compiled packages.
Sorry if my advice was wrong.

    No, I didn't install via rpm. I downloaded perl 5.12.3 tar from and configured it manually (./configure, make, makeinstall) over my system. What elese nned to be done to get module perl-Sys-Statistics-Linux-0.59-4, please advice.

      Read the previous responses you already have which explain how to install this module. If you have problems be specific as to what they are (How do I post a question effectively?). Sys::Statistics::Linux is now at version 0.66, note the change to provide backward comparability for Perl lower than v5.10. The version you are installing has problems, and is a couple of years out of date.
