Subject: Can't use to check libperl (or libmysqlclient)
Download (untitled) / with headers

I can't use to check for On FedoraCore6, but most RH systems put in the same place: [mpeters@localhost krang_trunk]$ locate /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/ [mpeters@localhost krang_trunk]$ perl -MDevel::CheckLib -e 'Devel::CheckLib::assert_lib(lib => "perl")' Can't build and link to 'perl' $Config{archlib} doesn't seem to be in /etc/ so that may be part of it. However, I can't get this to work either: [mpeters@localhost krang_trunk]$ perl -MDevel::CheckLib -e 'Devel::CheckLib::assert_lib(lib => "mysqlclient")' Can't build and link to 'mysqlclient' And is located at /usr/lib/mysql/ And /etc/ does have /usr/lib/mysql in it. Just to make sure my system isn't broken, I can do [mpeters@localhost krang_trunk]$ perl -MDevel::CheckLib -e 'Devel::CheckLib::assert_lib(lib => "gd")'

Fixed in CVS, which lets you specify lib directories. Please note that the current release of Devel::CheckLib is *not* recommended for real-world use, it was uploaded to the CPAN more as a convenient way to get it to people who could comment on it. CVS repo is here:
