stello has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Can someone enlighten me as to why the following code kicks the error:

DBD::mysql object version 2.0419 does not match bootstrap parameter 2.0902 at /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/ line 188. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./ line 3.
The Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl use DBI; use DBD::mysql; print "Hello"; exit;

    I think you messed up your DBD::mysql installation.

    bootstrap is part of the DynaLoader suite, and it loads the file only when the file fits the version.

    Look in the file DBD/ and compare it with the version in auto/DBD/ (fe. strings | less ).

    Anyway, just reinstall the Bundle::Mysql and you'll be fine.

    I agree that there probably is a problem in the DBD::mysql install. But a note - I always thought that "use DBI" was enough to invoke DBD::mysql. I've never had to actually specify "use DBD::anything" (I use a number of DBDs), "use DBI;" has always been enough.
