Subject: cant install version DBD::MySQL 4.00x
cant install version DBD::MySQL 4.00x But when you first install File::HomeDir, then installation of DBD::MySQL 4.005 is possible. Is this normal ?

Can't install = ? Please explain. What error? What OS? What version of MySQL? Is your MySQL installation binary or compiled yourself? File::HomeDir has nothing at all to do with DBD::mysql.
Please explain. What OS? cygwin, Centos 3.x, Centos 4.x, and Solaris 9 What version of MySQL? 4.1.x and 5.0.x Is your MySQL installation binary or compiled yourself? Both, we did try everything. But now it works on a 4.1.x compiled on Centos 4.5 and on Solaris 9 with the binary for 4.1.x and 5.0.x. What error? Can't find de *.h (header) files

Is it possible that Makefile.PL uses it to find mysql_config or something else.

The error appears to me that you don't have 'mysql_config' in your path, which Makefile.PL requires in order to determine where to find the MySQL client headers and libraries.

My guess is that maybe File::HomeDir installation might have set some paths for you to make it so Makefile.PL can find mysql_config; Though Makefile.PL doesn't rely on nor does it use File::HomeDir. regards, Patrick

On all the different OS we do have the same problems. And after we did install File::HomeDir it was solved onto all that systems where File::HomeDir was installed, and on the one without it still don't work. I will when i are at work to simulate the problems agen by unisntalling the module File::HomeDir or do ypu have an other idea
This ticket is over 5 years old. At the very least with current versions this does no longer apply. I'll close this ticket. If you still think action is needed on this ticket, please reopen it.
