in reply to DBD::mysql fail install check

I browsed many sites, each coming up with different solutions, but they don't work. It seems the program is directed somewhere in the wrong place?

What did you try?

    Sorry, that was very imprecise of me. Most websites regard to similar kind of trouble and start describing solutions from compiling DBD::mysql. After that succeeded (as I did as well, in the end..) there is no further report on this problem. None seems to specify my particular error (the one posted). I should not have mentioned the other websites but have asked:
    Does anyone have an idea what is wrong here?

        Or for error of form Can't load '/tmp/perl_tmp/DBD-Oracle-1.64/blib/arch/auto/DBD/Oracle/' for module DBD::Oracle: /tmp/perl_tmp/DBD-Oracle-1.64/blib/arch/auto/DBD/Oracle/ undefined symbol: charsetid at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/ line 230.

        You run ldd -V to get a list of .so's it depends on, if any are missing, find them, adjust LD_LIBRARY_PATH

        If none are missing, search each one with objdump -p |grep missingsymbolname

        Then search your harddisk ( locate ) for in different paths, and check with objdump if these alternates have the missingsymbolname, and adjust LD_LIBRARY_PATH

        If you can't find the .so with the required symbol, upgrade, install a newver version of the library

        In my case, some combination of these.

        This is just an FYI, having struggled through installing DBD-mysql on OSX (yet again).

        32 or 64 bit? The system Perl that came with Mavericks is dual architecture. But this time around I was installing using perlbrew, which is 64 bit. So,duh, I need the 64-bit MySQL database.

        That means I don't need to set VERSIONPER_PERL_PREFER_32_BIT anymore.

        Oh, don't forget to stop the 32-bit and start the 64 bit first.

        Then, set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH before building the module.
