Hi, We are getting below mentioned error while running make command for PERL. The Oracle version installed on the machine is 11gR2 and I couldn't find the files it is trying to search under ORACLE_HOME. Can you help us with this issues? ERROR MESSAGE root - R9DEVT> perl Makefile.PL Using DBI 1.54 (for perl 5.008008 on aix-thread-multi-64all) installed in /usr/opt/perl5/lib64/site_perl/5.8.8/aix-thread-multi-64all/auto/DBI/ Configuring DBD::Oracle for perl 5.008008 on aix (aix-thread-multi-64all) Remember to actually *READ* the README file!

I will have to reject this one as it is a config/install issue and not a bug persay You best bet for support is to post this on There is a large number of people who look at that list and they will help you much more. Here are some things that may be a problem 1) The required directory is Read Only for you. You will have to have execute permission on the *.mk files 2) You Oracle may not be fully installed 3) My best advice is to get the instant client and try to get that to work locally.
