stretched2thin has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I come before you with great confusion and a few less clumps of hair..... When I use DBI:mSQL, I can connect to the mSQL db. But when I try to connect to the MySQL db and use DBI:mysql, the error log keeps giving me:
install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't find loadable object for module DB +D::mysql in @INC (/usr/libdata/perl5/DBD/ /usr/libdata/perl5/i386-bsd +os/5.00402 /usr/libdata/perl5 /usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl/i386-bsdos + /usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl /usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl/i386-bsdos +/include .) at (eval 1) line 2 Perhaps DBD::mysql was statically linked into a new perl binary. In which case you need to use that new perl binary. Or perhaps only the .pm file was installed but not the shared object f +ile.
Do I have to change some link somewhere? I even tried using: use lib '/path/to/DBD' thanks for your time- (help me save my hair ;)
