in thread CPAN install DBI-1.53

Thanks Rob I can only find this in the Writemakefile.pl document :-(
WriteMakefile( dbd_edit_mm_attribs(\%opts, { create_pp_tests => 1, }) );
Do you mean remove this?

    Tried to instal another module and get this error as well: cc1: Invalid option `-fno-strict-aliasing' What could cause this?

      Am makeing some headway

      Have removed the -fno-strict-aliasing part of the Makefile so it now reads:

      CCFLAGS = -D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64

      Now I get: make: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 13: Unexpected end of line seen

    I think %opts, in the Makefile.PL, might simply need that amended CCFLAGS entry inserted (anywhere) into it so it looks like this:
    my %opts = ( CCFLAGS => '-D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE_S +OURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64', NAME => 'DBI', AUTHOR => 'Tim Bunce (dbi-users@perl.org)', VERSION_FROM => 'DBI.pm', ABSTRACT_FROM => 'DBI.pm', PREREQ_PM => { "Test::Simple" => 0.40, Storable => 1, "File::Spec" + => 1 }, EXE_FILES => [ "dbiproxy$ext_pl", "dbiprof$ext_pl" ], DIR => [ ], dynamic_lib => { OTHERLDFLAGS => "$::opt_g" }, clean => { FILES=> "\$(DISTVNAME) Perl.xsi t/zv*_*.t" ." dbiproxy$ext_pl dbiprof$ext_pl dbitrace.log dbi.prof nd +test.prt" }, dist => { DIST_DEFAULT=> 'clean distcheck disttest tardist', PREOP => '$(MAKE) -f Makefile.old distdir', COMPRESS => 'gzip -v9', SUFFIX => 'gz', }, );
    If that doesn't help try getting a version of gcc that's at least recent enough to either understand or ignore '-fno-strict-aliasing'.

    Cheers,
    Rob
