can't install dbd::mysql


I have problems installing DBD:mysql on Red Hat Linux 9, either from CPAN,
or mannual install. The error is the same, something related to this Kid.pm
file under perl. Should I reinstall Perl? Perl came with Red Hat Linux 9
installation. Please help.

1.) from CPAN:

perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan> install DBI

DBI is up to date.

cpan> install DBD::mysql

I got many of these errors:

Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/ExtUtils/Liblist/Kid.pm line 97.

Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/ExtUtils/Liblist/Kid.pm line 97.


Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/ExtUtils/Liblist/Kid.pm line 97.

Multiple copies of Driver.xst found in:
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBI/ at
Makefile.PL line 295

Using DBI 1.45 (for perl 5.008 on i386-linux-thread-multi) installed in

Writing Makefile for DBD::mysql

Makefile:89: *** missing separator. Stop.

/usr/bin/make -- NOT OK

Running make test

Can't test without successful make

Running make install

make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

2.) Manually install from source:

download DBD-mysql-2.9003.tar, untar and run this:

perl Makefile.PL

I got exactly the same error as in 1.)

The errors you describe are not familiar to me, but there are two things
that are kind of "frequent obstacles" regarding Linux+Perl+MySQ L that
you should check first before proceeding:

1. http://mysql.he.net/doc/mysql/en/Per..._problems.html

2. Make sure you have the correct RPM's for MySQL installed. You need
the mysql-shared RPM to get DBD::mysql working.
