To err is Human: Extremely effective mayhem requires the root password!

Infact, though I did have the db software installed I did NOT have any
databases cataloged or aliased. Would that be the issue?
I don't see why that would be a problem, but I'm not certain. My only
experience is with MySQL. When I installed the client using binaries,
I had some problems, but when I compiled my client from source, it
linked to "mysql.h" and worked fine.

What DB are you using? I'm sort of a "source-a-holic" (like an alco-
but with source code - oh, never mind) so if you're not doing
"roll-your-own'" it's out of me and the DEA's jurisdiction.

For what its worth ( not a whole lot), my make test failed on
those
same
t/72childhandles ( AIX 5.2, perl 5.6?? - i can verify tomorrow
if
wanted).
I decided to go on despite the errors and had no problems.....yet.
Mostly
because Im in design/test phase.
my make install went without error.

Do you already have the client software for your database installed?
That is normally a prerequisite.




Do you mean the runtime application or the DBD? The runtime was
installed.
As far as I remember when I was installing it said the DBI needed to
be
installed first and when the make test failed and I tried to install
the DBD
just for kicks it needed the DBI first.

Did I answer your question?

/usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'install "DBI"'
it downloads the new module, builds everything, and then starts running
the make test portion of the install. During this process, I
get
the
following output (after a bunch of other successful tests): <snip>
/usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
make test had returned bad status, won't install without
force

I already have an older version of DBI installed (need to
upgrade
in
order
to install Bugzilla), and I don't otherwise think there's
anything
magical
about my existing Perl install or my server setup.
I really have no idea how to proceed from this point. Any
ideas?
Since most of the tests passed, if you're confident enough in
the new
DBI
you can
/usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "DBI"'

Cheers,
Stuart.
