( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm attempting an install of the DBD-mysql module off of CPAN. I'm using perl 5.8 (thanks to another unintentional CPAN upgrade). I've loaded DBI successfully and installed mysql successfully. My OS is RH 7.3 If you're so inclined, please take a look at the error listing below.

CPAN.pm: Going to build J/JW/JWIED/DBD-mysql-2.1017.tar.gz Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL li +ne 169. readline() on closed filehandle main::PIPE at Makefile.PL line 171. Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL li +ne 169. readline() on closed filehandle main::PIPE at Makefile.PL line 171.

Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL li +ne 169. readline() on closed filehandle main::PIPE at Makefile.PL line 171. Failed to determine directory of mysql.h. Use perl Makefile.PL --cflags=-I<dir> to set this directory. For details see the INSTALL.html file, section "C Compiler flags" or type perl Makefile.PL --help Running make test Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't test Running make install Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't install
Thanks in Advance!

Code On!

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
