Hello Everyone

Lately I've installed Perl 5.8.7 on the Debian Woody box.
The installation went fine, but when I run the old scripts , the script
throws out the following error
install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/auto/DBD/mysq +l/' for module DBD::mysql: /usr/lib/perl5/auto/DBD/mysql/mysq undefined symbol: PL_perl_destruct_level at /usr/local/lib/perl +5/5.8.7/i686-linux-thread-multi/ line 230. at (eval 5) line 3
I've downloaded the DBD::mysql module and tried to compile it, when the Makefile.PL
is executed, I see the following:
Multiple copies of Driver.xst found in: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl +/5.8.7/i686-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBI/ /usr/local/lib/perl/5.6.1/au +to/DBI/ /usr/lib/perl5/auto/DBI/ at Makefile.PL line 395 Using DBI 1.48 (for perl 5.008007 on i686-linux-thread-multi) installe +d in /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/i686-linux-thread-multi/aut +o/DBI/
When I type 'make', make exits with 'Error 1'.
Now, I want to remove the existing DBD::Mysql module and reinstall it. Can anybody let me know how to uninstall the module with all its dependencies.

Any suggestions are welcome
