Mysql-modules ak-dbd & mysql2 test fails


Can anyone shed any light on this?

I’m trying to get RT working, but the msql-mysql-modules compilation is
giving problems. I’ve installed mysql numerous times both by source code
and also by binary installation. However when I run make test on the
msql-mysql-modules my tests fail.

I’m running AIX 4.2.1 with perl 5.005_03

With the precompiled AIX binary most tests pass, but the following fail:


like this:

t/60leaks…skipping test on this platform
t/ak-dbd…FAILED tests 80, 87, 89
Failed 3/90 tests, 96.67% okay
t/mysql2…FAILED tests 3-32

1 test skipped.

make[1]: *** [test_dynamic] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [test] Error 2

Any ideas what’s causing this?
If I compile the source for mysql manually, none of the tests pass and I
get errors of type:

Compiling the source code myself I get
t/00base…install_driver(mysql) failed: Can’t load
’…/blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/’ for module DBD::mysql: dlopen:
…/blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/ can’t find symbol __udivdi3 /usr/support/mysql/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient
.a at /usr/support/lib/perl5/5.00503/aix/ line 169.

which the documentation says is due to gcc not linking libgcc.a. But my
LD_RUN_PATH for make-ing mysql-modules does include reference to the
location for my libgcc file. The other solution they say is to re-compile
mysql and/or perl with the same gcc. However I’ve recompiled mysql with
gcc 2.9.5 which is the only gcc on our system, and I’m sure perl was
compiled with this too. I don’t really want to have to recompile perl as
well. Any ideas?
