Subject: Compiling note for Perl-DBD-MySQL for RedHat AS 4.0 SP2 on IA64 machine

Now we were trying to connect MySQL by Perl with Perl-DBD-MySQL and encountered the compilation failure. - The environment is: Perl v5.8.5 DBI-1.40 DBD-mysql-3.0002 MySQL-pro-cert-5.7.17a RedHat Linux AS 4.0 SP2 HP RX5670, Itanium CPU, IA64 arch - compilation steps and error messge: [root@rx5670-1 DBD-mysql-3.0002]# perl Makefile.PL I will use the following settings for compiling and testing: cflags (mysql_config) = -I/usr/include/mysql -unroll2 -ip - mp -restrict embedded (mysql_config) = libs (mysql_config) = -i-static -L/usr/lib/mysql - lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm mysql_config (guessed ) = mysql_config nocatchstderr (default ) = 0 nofoundrows (default ) = 0 ssl (guessed ) = 0 testdb (default ) = test testhost (default ) = testpassword (default ) = testsocket (default ) = testuser (default ) = To change these settings, see 'perl Makefile.PL --help' and 'perldoc INSTALL'. Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Unrecognized argument in LIBS ignored: '-i-static' Using DBI 1.40 (for perl 5.008005 on ia64-linux-thread-multi) installed in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/ia64-linux-thread- multi/auto/DBI Writing Makefile for DBD::mysql [root@rx5670-1 DBD-mysql-3.0002]# make cp lib/DBD/ blib/lib/DBD/ cp lib/DBD/mysql/ blib/lib/DBD/mysql/ cp lib/ blib/lib/ cp lib/DBD/mysql/INSTALL.pod blib/lib/DBD/mysql/INSTALL.pod cp lib/Mysql/ blib/lib/Mysql/ cp lib/Bundle/DBD/ blib/lib/Bundle/DBD/ gcc -c -I/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/ia64-linux-thread- multi/auto/DBI -I/usr/include/mysql -unroll2 -ip -mp -restrict -g - D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -DDEBUGGING -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe - I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 - I/usr/include/gdbm -O2 -g -pipe -DVERSION=\"3.0002\" - DXS_VERSION=\"3.0002\" -fPIC "-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ia64-linux-thread- multi/CORE" dbdimp.c gcc: unrecognized option `-restrict' cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-ip" cc1: error: invalid option `p' make: *** [dbdimp.o] Error 1 - the problem is: I think the problem encounterd on ia64 platform might come from the gcc compiling options which have close relationship with MySQL. According to the Makfile generated by "perl Makefile.PL", I found the settings of cflags and libs on ia64 are different with that on i386 and x86_64. The default value of these settings comes from mysql_config which is a MySQL command. It tells us what compiling options were used for this binary MySQL. However, when I was compiling DBD-mysql, the gcc was unable to understand these options. Thus the DBD-mysql would fail to build links to MySQL library file(.so). So the compiling process reported error and was forced to exit. I have highlighed in red the unrecognized parts. --cflags [-I/usr/include/mysql -unroll2 -ip -mp - restrict] --include [-I/usr/include/mysql] --libs [-i-static -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient - lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm] --libs_r [-i-static -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient_r - lz -lpthread -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread] --socket [/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock] --port [3306] --version [5.0.17a] --libmysqld-libs [-i-static -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqld -lz - lpthread -lcrypt -lnsl -lm - the solution is: cp -f Makefile Makefile.origin sed "s/\/usr\/lib\/mysql/\/usr\/lib/g" Makefile > Makefile.tmp mv Makefile.tmp Makefile sed "s/\-ip//g" Makefile > Makefile.tmp mv Makefile.tmp Makefile sed "s/\-mp//g" Makefile > Makefile.tmp mv Makefile.tmp Makefile sed "s/\-restrict//g" Makefile > Makefile.tmp mv Makefile.tmp Makefile sed "s/\-i\-static//g" Makefile > Makefile.tmp mv Makefile.tmp Makefile The complete Makefile and the log file is enclosed in the attachment. I am not sure if the above issue affects other distro linux.
