( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a Perl program running on RedHat Linux that runs just find from the command-line as root, but throws an error from the commaind-line as a user, like so:
[gblackburn]$ perl DBI object version 1.32 does not match $DBI::VERSION 1.37 at /usr/lib/ +perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/ line 249. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i3 +86-linux-thread-multi/ line 255. Compilation failed in require at line 5. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 5.
So it looks like it's trying to use the Perl 5.6.1 DBI binary instead of the Perl 5.8.0 binary. But like I said it runs fine as root, so I checked which perl and both the user and root respond with /usr/bin/perl. Then I checked @INC for both, and they are identical.

The PATH variables for root and user are somewhat different (of course) but if the path-to-perl is the same, and the @INC is the same, shouldn't the same modules be called in both cases? I'm clearly missing something dumb. Thanks!

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • 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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
