Installation issues for DBD::mysql
Hey all, so I'm having issues installing DBD::mysql. Here's my error message:
I do have the dev libraries installed and DBI is installed an up to date. I'm very new to all of this so I'm pretty much at a loss of what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

you are having trouble with a PERL module so this is better off in the PERL forum in my opinion. If you want the thread moved let me know and I (or another mod) will move the thread for you.
You may also want to look at the MySQL version attached to that DBD file as 4.0.22 is significantly out of date.

Hey, yeah I didn't really think about it but if you could move it that would be great, thanks.
And I don't think that version number corresponds to the mysql version (5.5), as it is the latest version of DBD:mysql released Aug. 29 2012.

Also, and I'm just guessing here, it's possible that the file 'mysql_config' is either missing or in the wrong place!

WELL. On a whim I decided to run "cpan upgrade" and after it did a lot of stuff, DBI and DBD::mysql are both installed and up to date. At first I was like, this vexes me. I find myself terribly vexed...
but it seems to be functioning so...I will tentatively say that my problem is solved for now. Thanks for the responses. I'm sure I'll be back when the next crisis hits
