Your description of how you attempted to install the module is vague, but from the results it looks like the module is not correctly installed. Try again and do it properly. Show your attempts and the errors you get.

    Below is the method I used for installing DBD::Mysql
    1. perl Makefile.PL –mysql_config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config –t +estuser=root –testpassword=111111 I will use the following settings for compiling and testing: cflags (mysql_config ) = -I/usr/local/mysql/include -Os -g -fno-common + -fno-strict-aliasing -arch x86_64 embedded (mysql_config ) = ldflags (mysql_config ) = libs (mysql_config ) = -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -lmysqlclient -lpthread mysql_config (Users choice ) = /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config nocatchstderr (default ) = 0 nofoundrows (default ) = 0 ssl (guessed ) = 0 testdb (default ) = test testhost (default ) = testpassword (User’s choice) = 111111 testsocket (default ) = testuser (User’s choice) = root 2. make 3. make test All tests successful. Files=51, Tests=1270, 22 wallclock secs ( 0.38 usr 0.16 sys + 3.51 c +usr 0.49 csys = 4.54 CPU) Result: PASS 4. sudo make install Installing /Library/Perl/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/DBD/mysq +l/mysql.bundle Appending installation info to /Library/Perl/Updates/5.12.4/darwin-thr +ead-multi-2level/perllocal.pod

      OK -- can you run something very simple, either from the debugger, or as a simple script, that just connects to the database?
