I am running into an error with Perl on Debian, more specifically a conflict with libxml-sax-perl.

Preparing to replace libxml-sax-perl 0.96+dfsg-1 (using libxml-sax-perl_0.96+dfsg-1_all.deb) ...

Fatal: cannot call XML::SAX->save_parsers_debian().
You probably have a locally installed XML::SAX module.

Errors were encountered while processing: libxml-sax-perl

I was able to work around this using:

cd /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0/XML/
mkdir dnu
mv SAX* dnu/
apt-get install libxml-libxml-perl
