Version of DBD::Oracle needed to connect to 9i ?by secret (Beadle)
|on May 12, 2006 at 14:21 UTC||Need Help??|
secret has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello DBI Monks ;)
I try to connect to an Oracle 920 base with the classic :
I get the following error :
I'm using perl 5.8.0 on solaris 5.8 .
I have $DBD::Oracle::VERSION = '1.15' and $DBI::VERSION = "1.42";
Various searches lead me to believe that this is due to the version of DBD::Oracle not being compiled with the proper oracle home directory set.
I do not know where this Perl, DBI and DBD::Oracle come from, but most likely from a standard Solaris package. Has anyone encountred this before, i.e. is there some Solaris doc or changelog that point to this problem ?
Is there an easier way than to re-install the DBD::Oracle ?
Can I assume that installing the latest DBD::Oracle and DBI will allow me to connect to the 9i client ?
Thanks for your help ,
