( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've installed mysql version 5.1.55 from the source. Installed perl rpm version- perl-5.8.8-32.el5_5.2.

I've configured perl modules using cpan command -
cpan -i Bundle::DBD::mysql

Installed modules are:
DBD::mysql DBI ExtUtils::MakeMaker Perl Term::ReadKey Test::Simple

Now I've one script to check if I could connect to mysql. Here is the script which I used to test -

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; use DBI; my $db="test"; my $host="localhost"; my $user="test"; my $password="test"; #connect to MySQL database my $dbh = DBI->connect ("DBI:mysql:database=$db:host=$host",$user,$pas +sword) or die "Can't connect to database: $DBI::errstr\n"; #disconnect from database $dbh->disconnect or warn "Disconnection error: $DBI::errstr\n"; exit;
However on execution I get following error -
perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-lin +ux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/mysql/ undefined symbol: mysql_init
It would be really great if you can guide me to resolve this issue.
