Getting Perl DBD::mysql running

Postby charrison on Tue Sep 11, 2012 2:47 pm

I don't know if this question is related to my "edition" or not, so that probably qualifies me as a newbie...

Perl is installed, via perlbrew. v5.16.1

Via cpan I'm trying to install DBD::mysql.

Code: Select all
cpan[1]> install DBD::mysql

Running install for module 'DBD::mysql'
Running make for C/CA/CAPTTOFU/DBD-mysql-4.021.tar.gz

............................................................................DONE Building C/CA/CAPTTOFU/DBD-mysql-4.021.tar.gz

Can't load '/home/charrison/perl5/lib/perl5/i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int/auto/DBI/' for module DBI: /home/charrison/perl5/lib/perl5/i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int/auto/DBI/ undefined symbol: PL_thr_key at /home/charrison/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.16.1/lib/5.16.1/i686-linux/ line 190.
 at /home/charrison/perl5/lib/perl5/i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int/ line 266.

So, I don't know. Where should I start? If perlbrew is possibly getting in the way, I suppose I don't absolutely need it since I "own" the system.

Hope this isnt too late, but use cpan to install.

The latest version is 4.0.22 which installs fine on Perl v14
