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

Hi, anyone can guide me on fixing the following file not found problem ? I got it when loading:


use Sybase::DBlib;

Can't load '/opt/perl/5.6.0/lib/site_perl/5.6.0/sun4-solaris/auto/Sybase/DBlib/DBlib.so' for module Sybase::DBlib: ld.so.1: test.pl: fatal: libsybdb.so: open failed: No such file or directory at /opt/perl/5.6.0/lib/5.6.0/sun4-solaris/DynaLoader.pm line 200.

Thanks in advance.

    No such file or directory
    That's right, I guess. But that could mean that
    • either /opt/perl/5.6.0/lib/site_perl/5.6.0/sun4-solaris/auto/Sybase/DBlib/DBlib.so doesn't exist
    • or a subsequent shared object file used by the above shared library doesn't exist

    So, it seems to (and the fix is)

    • either the module is not installed correctly (re-install)
    • or the module was linked against the wrong libraries (re-install)
    • or it has been compiled on a different machine and copied over (install software Sybase::DBlib depends upon, then rebuild)

    --shmem

    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                  /\_¯/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

    If libsybdb.so exists on your system (usually in $SYBASE/OCS-XY_Z/lib where XY_Z is 12_5 or 15_0) then the most likely problem is that your LD_LIBRARY_PATH isn't set correctly. The easiest way of setting your environment correctly is to source the SYBASE.sh (or SYBASE.csh) file located in the root directory of the Sybase install.

    If you're dealing with a CGI script I've found that setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH inside the perl cgi script does not work. Instead I've had to add a line to the Apache conf file in order to export the environment file correctly, like so:
    PassEnv LD_LIBRARY_PATH
