in thread yast vs cpan

No, 'YaST' and CPAN are not in sync. You will probably be stuck with the Perl modules that were packaged at the time the distribution release was made unless you install from CPAN. Personally I freely upgrade any of the perl module packages that came with the OS distribution, but there again I also have several other perl builds on the machine.
