in thread Activestate 5.8 + DBD-mysql a no-go?


Thanks for the pointer. I tried it; installed without a hitch under ppm3. However, it doesn't work. Says something like this:

install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't load 'C:/Perl/site/lib/auto/DBD/my +sql/mysql.dll' for module DBD::mysql: load_file:One of the library fi +les needed to run this application cannot be found at C:/Perl/lib/Dyn line 229. at (eval 1) line 3
Not sure what to do. I take it that the precompiled binaries in the ppd aren't statically linked and they're needing a library file (Which one? Doesn't say) that doesn't exist on my system. ::sighs::

I'm thinking about downgrading back to ActivePerl 5.6 so I can get some sanity back. I'll come back around to 5.8 when ActiveState catches up. (muted grumbling)

    Same old, same old, do it by hand, visit for help+.

    You should also view some of the threads I mention PPM in, as they discuss resolving problems with PPM

    It looks like you need mysql.dll at 'c:/Perl/site/lib/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.dll'

    I checked my (Perl 5.6) installation and I indeed found this mysql.dll at that location. Perhaps the 5.6 version will work for 5.8 too.

    I'll be happy to e-mail you this mysql.dll if you give me your e-mail address.
