passwords & DBI/DBD

P: n/a
I installed the current stable release of MySQL from RPMs. I used the client
and server packages.

After installing the server package, the RPM printed a note saying I should
run two commands. I only got the first one, which was
# ./mysqladmin -u root --password
I assume this gave the root user a password.

I then downloaded and proceeded to compile the Perl DBI and DBD:mysql
packages. The DBI package installed fine after I also installed the
"MySQL-devel" RPM.

However, the DBD compile/install failed when I ran 'make test'. The output
looked like this:

=============
Mysql connect('database=test;host=','',...) failed: Access denied for user:
'root@localhost' (Using password: NO) at t/mysql.t line 55
not ok 1: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)
It looks as if your server is not up and running.
This test requires a running server.
Please make sure your server is running and retry.

make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 29
==================================================

I also noticed that whenever I do anything with the mysqladmin program, I
always have to give the '-p' option and then enter my password for anything
to work.

So, what do I need to do to get 'make test' to work? Do I need to remove the
password somehow, or give some extra options with make? (I'm a complete
newbie to MySQL and DB administration)

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Jeremy
