in reply to Install Module DBD crashes with "Cant find library"

the oracle install is a real PITA. Install oracle install client for, I think in your situation, 64 bit perl, and for your platform. Downloadable for free from, after nagging you to create an account with user/pw. Before doing anything with the perl install, verify that you can connect to an oracle db with instantclient. I did something like this
$ cat export INSTANT_CLIENT_PATH=/home/oracleInstalls/10.2/instantclient_10_ +2 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$INSTANT_CLIENT_PATH export PATH=$INSTANT_CLIENT_PATH:$PATH export TNS_ADMIN=/opt/oracle export ORACLE_HOME=$INSTANT_CLIENT_PATH export ORACLE_USERID='user/password' #export ORACLE_DSN='mydb2.myhost' # this dien't work export ORACLE_DSN='dbi:Oracle:host=myhost;sid=mydb2' # necessary to ge +t make test to work in dbd::oracle #needed for sqlplus export TWO_TASK=mydb2.myhost export ORACLE_SID=mydb2 alias go-dbd-oracle='cd /usr/cpanroot64/.cpan/build/DBD-Oracle-1.18' #$dbh = DBI->connect(";sid=ORCL", $user, $pa +sswd); alias the-sqlplus='sqlplus user/password@mydb2.myhost'
After I verified that I could commit to sqlplus, I cd-ed into the build dir for DBD::Oracle and force-installed.
