Perl DBI Module

Hi all
I have this config, and would like to install perl DBI and DBD Oracle. Is there any special flag I need to supply to perl Makefile.PL?

It failed when this error message.

Running Mkbootstrap for DBI ()
chmod 644
rm -f blib/arch/auto/DBI/
LD_RUN_PATH="" ld -b -L/usr/local/lib DBI.o -o blib/arch/auto/DBI/
ld: (Warning) At least one PA 2.0 object file (DBI.o) was detected. The linked output may not run on a PA 1.x system.
ld: Invalid loader fixup in text space needed in output file for symbol "$000001B8" in input file "DBI.o"
*** Error exit code 1

os: HPUX 11.11 64bit

Re: Perl DBI Module

Do you care to try my 5.8.0 port that comes with precompiled DBI-1.30 and is prepared to run DBD::Oracle?

FWIW, the perl-5.6.1 that is shipped with HP-UX does *NOT* support DBD::Oracle. All newer releases available from the porting certer however *do*.

Please visit for more info and complete downloads (including gcc-3.2 with which perl was compiled)

As a note aside for all other forumers, I did some benchmarks lately, which proved that HP C-ANSI-C compiled perl-5.8.0 is between 8 and 26% faster than gcc compiled perl's!

So *IF* you have HP's ANSI C compiler, consider either a build of yourself or wait for me putting a HPc build on beepz :) Anyone wants that?
Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

Re: Perl DBI Module

Acura, I would love to see a 64 bit gcc build
of Perl 5.6.1 or 5.8.1 on HPUX 11.11
( i have loads of problems doing that at
the moment)
