this is off-topic in this subject, you should have opened a new one ...

Looks like you had installed rrdtool-1.3.0-1.fc9.x86_64 before,
along with it's companion rrdtool-perl-1.3.0-1.fc9.x86_64

I assume you're trying to update just the rrdtool without the -perl
component and that fails ... because of dependencies ...

So if you don't need the -perl component, you'll have to remove that first.
Or you have to include it in the update ...

So either:

rpm -e rrdtool rrdtool-perl
yum install rrdtool-1.3.4-2.fc9.x86_64.rpm


yum update rrdtool-1.3.4-2.fc9.x86_64.rpm rrdtool-perl-1.3.4-2.fc9.x86_64.rpm

should do the job. You may have to download the latter first ...
