Re^2: DBD::Oracle charsetid symbol error

in thread DBD::Oracle charsetid symbol error

If I intentionally mess up LD_LIBRARY_PATH it dies differently since it can't find the lib. In this case it finds the lib but grouches about the missing 'charsetid' symbol. And I said I had little control since I know I can install another Perl install, but with this system unable to hit the outside world with a network, getting the modules set up wouldn't be pretty and when I move to deploy it would be torturous. It's working other than this one part, so unless I was certain that this was due to an old Perl I wouldn't want to go that way. I am using DBD::Proxy as a workaround for now.

    Well, resolving symbols kind of happens make-ing/building/compiling at linking/linker time , so if the symbol was missing before DBD/Oracle.so was created, Oracle.so wouldn't have been created

    That Oracle.so now isn't being loaded because of a missing symbol says that LD_LIBRARY_PATH is wrong
