Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: DBD-Oracle1.15..installation fails


This may be way off base but check to see if the lwp libraries are included in the 5.8.5 version. You may want to download the latest HP version for HP-UX 11i from the software depot located at:

Hope this helps,

Re: DBD-Oracle1.15..installation fails

I think that your problem is described in README.hpux in DBD::Oracle distribution. Solution is to recompile perl and link with libcl and libpthread libraries.

If you are running perl Configure interactively then when asked the question:

What libraries to use? - Answer by prepending (i.e. at the beginning): -lcl -lpthread

For example:
What libraries to use? [-lnsl -lnm -lndbm -lmalloc -ldld -lm -lc -lndir -lcrypt -lsec] -lcl -lpthread -lnsl -lnm -lndbm -lmalloc -ldld -lm -lc -lndir -lcrypt -lsec

Alternatively you can run Configure as follows.

$ sh Configure -des -A prepend:libswanted='cl pthread '

Re: DBD-Oracle1.15..installation fails

1. Ermins answer is correct, and you can see that you didn't in the -V output:

libs=-lnsl -lnm -lndbm -lmalloc -ldld -lm
perllibs=-lnsl -lnm -lmalloc -ldld -lm

2. Do not attach .doc files if you want help. Plain text. *I* will not read .doc attachments, and I am considered the perl DBI/DBD guru here, so you /could/ miss some info

3. DBD-Oracle-1.16 is released this week. If you are going to have to deal with Unicode or non-standard encodings I strongly advise to get it

4. Read README.hpux (or do man perlhpux) in the perl distribution *and* in the DBD-Oracle distribution.
