Newbie: Installing Modules

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I'm trying to install a few modules to get Perl on RH Linux AS 3.0 to
speak to an Oracle database.
I'm installing as ROOT:


but when I check what's been installed, all I get is:

DBM, ExampleP, File, Proxy, Sponge

I've read the README, too... :)

Any ideas? Many thanks, Ed.

Heard you the first time, thanks. Please don't multi-post; instead of posting
separate messages each to one group, post a single message to all relevant
groups. That ensures that people who have read the message in one group won't
see it as a new message in another, and that replies are likewise sent to all
the target groups.

Yes - post the output from "make" and "make test" when you tried to install
DBD::Oracle. You've posted the build log from Data::Dumper here, but that's
of no use, since that's not the module that failed to install.
