I did some additional research and I believe the source of the problems above is a 64 bit MySQL database and 32 bit Perl - at least in the past I recall having to deinstall the 64 bit mysql program and install the 23 bit version for DBD to work. The fact that Perl 5.10 is supposed to support 64 bit now muddies those waters but, nevertheless, I did perform the 32 bit reinstall. I also was able to get DBD:mysql to compile properly. However, I am still getting errors when I run my script:
finhagens-macbook-pro:perl finhagen$ ./ dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _mysql_init Referenced from: /Library/Perl/5.10.0/darwin-thread-multi-2level/aut +o/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle Expected in: flat namespace dyld: Symbol not found: _mysql_init Referenced from: /Library/Perl/5.10.0/darwin-thread-multi-2level/aut +o/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle Expected in: flat namespace Trace/BPT trap
I googled this error but I didn't find any references that explained how to fix this problem. Any suggestions?


I recently upgraded my MAC OS to the latest Snow Leopard 10.6 release. Among other things it broke DBD:mysql. I tried reinstalling perl 5.10 and the DBD::mysql module using CPAN. When I try to install DBD::mysql I get the following error:

When I try and run the script that calls the DBD module I get this error:

I seem to recall an issue like this in the past but I can't remember what I did to address it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
