Hi roboticus,

The 'PerlGcc' architecture in perlgcc has not given me trouble before, even building DBD::Oracle.

Both (the CPAN modules and unixODBC) were compiled with GCC, but unixODBC had been linked with the Forte 'ld', so I built it again:

./configure  --prefix=$HOME/unixODBC LD=gcc MAKE=gmake AR=/usr/ccs/bin/ar

Same result. I learned of 'nm', and the "missing" symbols are indeed defined in unixODBC's, e.g.:

$ /usr/ccs/bin/nm -r .cpan/build/DBD-ODBC-1.43-fQI1op/blib/arch/auto/D +BD/ODBC/ unixODBC/lib/ perl5/lib/perl5/sun4-solaris- +64int/auto/DBI/ | grep SQLGetDiagRec [892] | 0| 0|NOTY |GLOB |0 |UNDEF |.cpan/build/D +BD-ODBC-1.43-fQI1op/blib/arch/auto/DBD/ODBC/ [2820] | 127256| 1776|FUNC |GLOB |0 |13 |unixODBC/lib/ [859] | 0| 0|FILE |LOCL |0 |ABS |unixODBC/lib/ [2699] | 129032| 72|FUNC |GLOB |0 |13 |unixODBC/lib/ [2792] | 216212| 2076|FUNC |GLOB |0 |13 |unixODBC/lib/ [1383] | 0| 0|FILE |LOCL |0 |ABS |unixODBC/lib/

Since it fails when testing, and the path to isn't mentioned in any of the GCC commands, maybe it's not being included in the RPATH?

$ /usr/ccs/bin/elfdump -d .cpan/build/DBD-ODBC-1.43-fQI1op/blib/arch/ +auto/DBD/ODBC/ | grep PATH [3] RUNPATH 0x104e /usr/ccs/lib:/lib:/u +sr/lib:/usr/sfw/lib [4] RPATH 0x104e /usr/ccs/lib:/lib:/u +sr/lib:/usr/sfw/lib

Currently makepl_arg is '[LIBS=-L/export/home/filtro/unixODBC/lib]'. If my beginner's guess is correct, how do fix it? Providing it to perl -MCPAN through LD_LIBRARY_PATH makes no difference.

Thanks in advance,

[Corion]: marto: Naah, my module doesn't care, but the users of my module might expect some things to work in Chrome that only work in later builds (or, as seems to be the case, don't work there either ;) )
[Corion]: But I really wonder - I can tell Chrome to go offline, but requesting pages over the network still succeeds. But if I manually click the "offline" checkbox, that's different :-/
[LanX]: Corion can you tell WMC to check the sub version number ?
LanX has to run
