I’ve never tried the RPM-based install, but there are a couple of
ways to satisfy the dependencies. I generally try to keep my perl
modules out of the RPM system, so you’d be using CPAN instead of a
package manager/repository like yum.
If you still have the source sitting around and it’s the same version
as the to-be-installed RPM version, from the source:
$ make testdeps
$ make fixdeps
(Rinse, wash, repeat until
make testdeps is happy.)
If there are still missing chunks, figure out what’s going on by
trying to install them from CPAN:
perl -MCPAN -e’install Module::Name’
In your case, you might see what happens when you run:
perl -MCPAN -e’install DBD::Oracle’

Attempted to install 3.6.0 on Centos 4.3 (up to date as of this am)
I’ve been trying for a few weeks, on and off to get this working.
Finally gave up trying to resolve seemingly endless dependencies
and hunted around for a rpm based (yum preferrably) based install.
Finding http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?RPMInstall I was
pleased, and followed the instructions (to the letter, after failing
many times to do it ‘my way’)

Error: Missing Dependency: perl(DBD::Oracle) is needed by package
Apparently, satisfying this dependency is pretty endless and
more or less requires an Oracle installation.
I don’t want Oracle, don’t even particularly like Oracle.
