DBI, DBD::Oracle and LD_LIBRARY_PATHby Shendal (Hermit)
|on Aug 18, 2000 at 20:52 UTC||Need Help??|
Shendal has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm having trouble with DBI and DBD::Oracle. I think that it has to do with setting of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, so that DBI can dynamically load what it needs to access the Oracle database.
First, my initial code:
This fails with the following error:
This file, is indeed in $LD_LIBRARY_PATH/libclntsh.so.8.0. As evidence, if I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in my shell before executing this script, it works fine. That led me to try this with a BEGIN block:
...which still doesn't work.
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
