shilpam has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've installed DBI on Solaris 9. But, while installing DBD::Oracle, it gives me following error. I have already set the environment variables - ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID & TWO_TASK (and ofcourse PATH & LD_LIBRARY_PATH).
Can you pl. help me with this problem?
CPAN.pm: Going to build T/TI/TIMB/DBD-Oracle-1.16.tar.gz Using DBI 1.50 (for perl 5.008007 on sun4-solaris) installed in /usr/l +ocal/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/sun4-solaris/auto/DBI/ Configuring DBD::Oracle ... >>> Remember to actually *READ* the README file! Especially if you have any problems. The ORACLE_HOME environment variable must be set. It must be set to hold the path to an Oracle installation directory on this machine (or a machine with a compatible architecture). See the README.clients file for more information. ABORTED!
