SPUG: Installing DBD::mysql

It looks like it can't find mysql.so.
Here are some things you might check, not in any particular order.
Some will have absolutely no relevance, but it's what I do when
I run across an install problem like this.
1. Is there a ../blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.so reachable
from where you started up the test script?
2. Did you untar everything as root and are you running as root?
3. Are you in the correct directory when you start up the
test script ?
5. If mysql.so exists, does it have the correct permissions ?
6. Are you running compatible versions of Perl and DBD::mysql ?
7. Do you have the DBI modules installed ?
8. If you installed mysql from an RPM you might have to install
other RPMS. That is, if my memory serves me correctly,
there is a client rpm and a development rpm that have to be
installed to actually do any good work.
9. If you installed from a mysql tar file then the best bet might be
to uninstall the DBD stuff and then
restart again all the way from the tar file.
10. Do Alpha libraries have the ".so" extension ?
I grabbed all my mysql and mysql/dbd stuff off
a Walnut Creek CDROM called "LINUX Web Tools" and I
definitely had to install not only the server but also
the "mysql-client.." and the "mysql-devel..." stuff.
