Failed install of DBD::mysql


Folks,
I have installed MySQL v4 (client, server and development rpm's). I've
tried and failed to use the recommended mysqladmin to set a root password
after the installation (I have another post open on the MySQL newsgroup
about this). I'm attempting an alternative solution and using webmin
(www.webmin.com) to create/manage access to my databases.

Webmin reports "Warning: The Perl module DBD::mysql is not installed on your
system, so Webmin will not be able to reliably access your MySQL database.
Click here to install it now."

So... I set out to install the Perl module DBD::mysql module - I attempted
to perform it using the link provided by webmin (which calls CPAN, something
I know little about) and from the command line (using perl -MCPAN -e shell
and then doing INSTALL DBD::mysql at the CPAN command line).

Both give similar output as to what appears below (which I have grabbed from
the webmin output, but the errors are identical). Can someone tell me what
I am missing and how to resolve?

Much appreciated,
Randell D.

======== PROCESSING AND ERROR OUTPUT FOLLOWS =======
I will use the following settings for compiling and testing:

cflags (mysql_config)
= -I/usr/include/mysql -mcpu=i486 -fno-strength-reduce
libs (mysql_config)
= -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lc -lnss_file
s -lnss_dns -lresolv -lc -lnss_files -lnss_dns -lresolv
nocatchstderr (default ) = 0
nofoundrows (default ) = 0
ssl (guessed ) = 0
testdb (default ) = test
testhost (default ) =
testpassword (default ) =
testuser (default ) =

To change these settings, see 'perl Makefile.PL --help' and
'perldoc INSTALL'.

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
