Hello Chris,

check if the mysql-libraries are installed and where they are installed.

maybe you have to extend your library-search-path either with the
variable or via ld.config (see man-page for crle)

Betreff: DBD::Mysql and Perl on Solaris 9 for Bugzilla


     I admit that the following bit of information may not be relevant for
some as it isn't really directly related to development of bugzilla but
something I felt should be mentioned.

     I just finished installing Bugzilla on Solaris 9.  I had a few issues
with installing the perl module DBD::Mysql.  My problem was I installed the
binary package for MySQL and did not compile from source(.so vs. .a
libraries).  Now everything but this one module(DBD::Mysql) worked great.
My `make test` kept failing because it couldn't find certain libraries.
Specifically mysqlclient.so could not be found.  I am not a developer so I
had a fun time figuring this out even though it says so right in the error
message.  I didn't know the difference between a shared object and a static
one and now I do (:

     I just thought perhaps it was worth mentioning in the install
documentation available on the web (and all else if possible) that you need
the shared objects for DBD::Mysql.  I have read through the DBD::Mysql docs
and nothing mentions needing the source code for mysql or the shared
objects, but obviously to me they are needed.

     Anyways it is finally installed.  I would be happy to provide some
scripts as to the failings and to the successfull installs I have had if
anyone would like.  I saved them in a `script` session.  I hope this gets
put into the docs for future sys admins so they can install Bugzilla for
their misc projects without this headache.
