Subject: Needed to add libraries to install
Installing from CPAN against libmariadb, I had to add --libs=" -Lblah # was already there -lmariadb # was already there -lssl # missing -lz # missing" The module compiled, but then the test suite would bail out after being unable to load the module. Without -lssl, it says we're missing the symbol "SSL_get_error". Then, without -lz, we're missing the symbol "compress". Seems to me that Makefile.PL should know how to do that.
I'd argue this was more a problem of libmariadb than of DBD::mysql. Also, it has been fixed in newer libmariadb releases. In case you still have issues with newer libmariadb, please file a new ticket with more detail about your current setup -- at least the version of libmariadb you're trying to build against. -- Michiel
