I wanted to install both the ubuntu-package "mediainfo" and the ruby gem "mediainfo".

This wasn't possible with puppet, since both use the package resource (the latter with provider gem) and thus share the same namespace. Therefore two different resources with the same name can't coexist.

Even using a different name or alias runs into an error message that the package already exists.
