in reply to DBD::Oracle charsetid symbol error

Ignore the anonymous monk saying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH is wrong because you cannot get an if you have an undefined symbol because you can.

charsetid is an extern referred to in dbdimp.h

extern ub2 charsetid;

I don't think I've tried Do any of the headers or shared objects included in the build but from you Oracle client install mention charsetid? (you can use nm -a to show symbols in shared objects). I will download the latest instant client and try it myself.

Why are you building an old DBD::Oracle? - the latest is 1.64.

UPDATE: sorry, charsetid is defined in DBD::Oracle's dbdimp.c

    The warnings at the top of your build say oci8.c is missing. You cannot build DBD::Oracle without oci8.c (it is part of DBD::Oracle). This DBD::Oracle distribution seems fundamentally broken. I just downloaded DBD::Oracle 1.58 and it does contain oci8.c so the dir you are building DBD::Oracle in has been messed with. Untar it again and start from scratch.
