Re: DBD::mysql -- Perl Module wont install

After some struggle, I have successfully compiled and installed DBD::mysql.
My environment includes Solaris 9, MySQL 4.1.11, Perl 5.8.0, DBI-1.48.

Here are my steps:
/tmp/DBD-mysql-2.9007> setenv LANG C
/tmp/DBD-mysql-2.9007> perl Makefile.PL \
--libs="-L/app/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz" \
--cflags=-I/app/mysql/include/mysql \

I will use the following settings for compiling and testing:

cflags (Users choice) = -I/app/mysql/include/mysql
libs (Users choice) = -L/app/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz
mysql_config (Users choice) = /app/mysql/bin/mysql_config
nocatchstderr (default ) = 0
nofoundrows (default ) = 0
ssl (guessed ) = 0
testdb (default ) = test
testhost (default ) =
testpassword (default ) =
testsocket (default ) =
testuser (default ) =

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

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

Writing Makefile for DBD::mysql

Hope it helps,
