Subject: mysql 4 authentication fails
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 367b
MySQL 4 uses a new authentication method, but DBD-mysql does not support this method. Users have to program around this problem of reconfigure the mysql server before they can use mysql databases with DBD-mysql. Since the whole point of using modules is to prevent users from programming around common situations or to reconfigure servers, I call this a critical bug.

I'd call it a PEBKAC :) You probably just need to relink DBD::mysql against the new client libraries (the ones that you build/came with mysql 4) to get the mysql 4 auth.
