    Installing DBD-mysql perl module: fatal problem running "make install"

    • Article Type: General

    • Product Version: 18.01

    When trying to install DBD-mysql-4.011, had fatal problem when running the "make install" part.

    This problem was solved by removing the -xstrconst and –mt options from the Makefile:

    # remove -xstrconst and -mt
    # diff Makefile.dist Makefile
    < INC = -I$(DBI_INSTARCH_DIR) -I/usr/sfw/include/mysql -xstrconst -mt -g
    > INC = -I$(DBI_INSTARCH_DIR) -I/usr/sfw/include/mysql -g

    Our system is
    Currently running SUN_OS_2
    Oracle 102
    Service Pack: 1613

    [Thank you to Margaret Rankin at UC - Santa Barbara for supplying this Resolution.]
