RT3 DBD::mysql install/makefile problem

I attempted the CPAN install, then manually. Both fail in the
same place.

Sorry for the long post, but it has been a frustrating night
and I did not want to leave any details out…

RedHat 9, perl 5.8.0, fresh install.

MySQL-devel-4.0.13-0.i386.rpm
MySQL-server-4.0.13-0.i386.rpm

CPAN.pm: Going to build R/RU/RUDY/DBD-mysql-2.9002.tar.gz

I will use the following settings for compiling and testing:

cflags (mysql_config) = -I’/usr/include/mysql’
libs (mysql_config) = -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lc -lnss_files -lnss_dns -lresolv -lc -lnss_files -lnss_dns -lresolv
nocatchstderr (default ) = 0
nofoundrows (default ) = 0
ssl (guessed ) = 0
testdb (default ) = test
testhost (default ) =
testpassword (default ) =
testuser (default ) =

To change these settings, see ‘perl Makefile.PL --help’ and
’perldoc INSTALL’.

Checking if your kit is complete…
Looks good

Now, if you look at the Makefile, there are lines that do not

Here are other examples of lines that don’t look good:

Any thoughts? The mysql/Makefile is also broken in the
same way.

What are LANG and LC_ALL set to? set them to ‘C’:

export LANG=C; export LC_ALL=C

This could help with compiling perl modules.

Dear Bill (and Harald!),

On my RH9 system the default is ‘us_EN.UTF-8’.

I have found that it can be changed to ‘us_EN’ and it will work.

It messes up the kernel ‘make menuconfig’ though, so I have both in my root .bash_profile and just uncomment the one I need.

–a snip from .bash_profile-------------------

en_US works better with perl
