Can't load /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/PA-RISC2.0/auto/DB_File/DB_File.sl

Hi,
Now i think its high time i'll atlast post the message. I have given up struggling with using DB_File in perl.
I Installed perl5.8.0 from publix domain and then from merijn's Site but still keep getting this error message when i use DB_File, any idea whats the reason.
By the way OS is 11.00/32bit and D370 server.

here is the error
Can't load '/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/PA-RISC2.0/auto/DB_File/DB_File.sl' for module DB_File: No such file or
directory at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/PA-RISC2.0/XSLoader.pm line 83.
at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/PA-RISC2.0/DB_File.pm line 251
Compilation failed in require at ./t.pl line 4.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./t.pl line 4.

Where as all the files are there when in proper place when i list them, but still.

Thanks in advance
Rajeev

Hi,
check if the file has the execution attribute, and all the previous dir have the x (for searching).


I remember another thread, with a similar error, and it turned out that was the execute bit on the shared library, that is needed...

I searched in forum and couldn't find any threads relating to this and was forced to post this.
Also in frustration just to test it works on a development machine i gave 777 to the whole perl directory but still complained for the same thing

Not that this should bite, but mine should be installed in /opt/perl

Hi Merijin,

Yes your perl was installed in /opt/perl but when that gave the same error i thought might give a try downloading from HP-UX Porting site. But that too gives same error loading DF_File module.

Thanks

HI,
try debugging it, to check wheter it is a permission problem, using wbd, tusc or similia.

Where does your libdb.sl reside? does it have the right version?

a5:/tmp 133 > find /opt/perl -name DB_File.sl | xargs chatr

As you can see it wants to use /usr/lib/libdb.sl

You /should/ have that in order to run DB_File.sl The error is a deferred load error.

Thank you very much Merijin,
I got the problem, the program was looking for libdb.sl in /usr/local/lib where as the file was in /usr/sam/lib after making a link it worked.

Thanks
