in reply to Install Module issue

The BerkeleyDB.ppd you are trying to install is version 0.22 and it is complaining that it needs 0.31.

I went and loaded up ppm and version 0.22 was in the Activestate repository. If you are using this on a *NIX system you can probably install the module via cpan install of ppm.

    If Dynaloader is complaining about the version number as I suspected, is there not a way of specifying the version number to be used for the module that you are calling.
    Tried looking this idea up and the code I could find went along these lines,

    use BerkeleyDB 0.22;

    But this failed to work, it still gave exactly the same error message.
    Can I specifically state which version of the Perl module to use?
    Cheers

      No - the first BerkeleyDB.pm that gets found, gets loaded. If that's not the BerkeleyDB.pm that you want then you'd need to re-arrange the order in which the directories are being searched, so that the one you want to load does get found first.

      But that's all beside the point anyway - things are broken and need to be fixed. Version 0.31 of BerkeleyDB.pm is being loaded, but the BerleleyDB.dll that gets loaded is version 0.22. I would try uninstalling BerkeleyDB by running ppm remove BerkeleyDB and re-installing by running ppm install BerkeleyDB. If that doesn't take care of the mismatch then you might have to look at manually removing the BerkeleyDB installation(s) before re-installing it.

      Cheers,
