installing perl on mysql on suse 9.3 - error because root user has password

I have set a password for the mysql root user so when I do this:

shell> perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> install DBI
cpan> install DBD::mysql
install DBD::mysql fails Is there a way I can run install DBD::mysql and
supply the password as a parameter - or get it to prompt me for it?
Otherwise anyone know how I can remove the password temporarily for the root
user in mysql?Angus

Yes, Makefile.PL for DBD::mysql has a flag called "--test-pass". Run
perl Makefile.PL --help for more information.

You'll probably not be able to use the automated "install DBD::mysql"
from the cpan shell. Run "look DBD::mysql" from the cpan shell, and
it'll open a shell for you in the local directory in which it tries to
build that module and run tests. Then you can run Makefile.PL yourself
and give it the optional arguments.
