Hi there, Can anyone help with makemaker? I'm wanting to install DBI and DBD to custom directories. I've downloaded and unzipped the tar's. Then using Perl with the PREFIX parameter which has worked great for DBI. The perl5 perl_site etc all in the custom directory. The problem is when i then try to build DBD::Oracle it throws up an error that the DBI version is too old. I've also been able to run a perl script using the "use lib blah blah blah' and checked that the DBI version is indeed correct at this location. I've updated the Environment variable PERLLIB to reflect the newly installed DBI module location but no joy Any ideas? Thanks for any pointers, or advice on how i should go about installing DBI and DBD::Oracle to a custom directory Regards Phil

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
