Read my directly linked links below for ideas, an overview, then pick a thing to try ... all the external links I link in the links below are worth reading

Problem 1: I haven't been about to figure out how they managed to run Perl 5.8.4 32-bit pointing to the Oracle 64-bit library directory. When I compile Solaris myself and then install DBI, then DBD it will fail without pointing LD_LIBRARY to Oracles 32-bit directory.

Its simple, they didn't do that :) they must not depend on LD_LIBRARY for that version of DBD/, and the correct path is baked in (check with ldd -V ) or they linked against static "liboracle" (or instaclient whatever the actual detail) which doesn't care if LD_LIBRARY_PATH points to some 64bitness version, cause its not gonna try and load it anyway

Problem 2: They are roughly 80 employees using one of these Solaris servers (filesystems all linked together). I do not have root, IT no longer supports the servers that they think no one uses anymore. Therefore, I cannot add a new LD_LIBRARY_PATH to each employees .profile.

Then "Bake" in the correct path into

Or link against static version of liboracle not depend on ""?

Or set the path from a module everybody depends on (,, or a custom module already found in perlrun#PERL5OPT , PERLLIB

or set inside (see under perlrun#* f* )

Problem 3: I cannot update a few thousand scripts to add a BEGIN block with $ENV{LD_LIBRARY_PATH} to get around their script and mimic it, since it needs the SID, and I won't know the SID, unless I run a web service...


Therefore, I really need help getting this to work. I need to just know how I'm compiling either Solaris incorrectly (the documentation isn't well), or DBD::Oracle. There must be something in there where it is allowing 32-bit and 64-bit libraries to co-exist, it is the only thing I can figure out.

What do you get when you run ldd -v or ldd -v

More of the same references below (baking is install_name_tool ...)

Re^3: DBD::mysql fail install check (DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH ldd otool install_name_tool VERSIONER_PERL_PREFER_32_BIT .bundle/.dylib/.so

Right, in that case, ldd blib/, then adjust your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or use install_name_tool or add -R/instead/of/LD_LIBRARY_PATH to LIBS/CCFLAGS
