Hi,
For oracle::dbd on solaris 10, the paths are incorrect, so all the DBD calls are failing in perl modules. In mk.pm file I can see the paths are incorrect.
Appreciate if someone can guide how to correct the paths, and what is required to correct the paths.

Thanks for all the help.

Do you have your ORACLE_HOME environment variable properly set?

If you have that set, then you should just be able to go into the module source code directory and type in:

   perl Makefile.PL

Watch the output - you should see the correct location of the oracle libraries directory go by (as long as you have ORACLE_HOME set correctly!)

From what I experienced installing DBD::oracle on Solaris 64-bit, it was much easier to download the Oracle's compiler (Oracle Solaris Studio)
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solarisstudio/overview/index.html
than use gcc .

It's better even to build perl with this compiler.

I only needed a client, so I just installed Oracle's "instantclient", pointed my ORACLE_HOME to that (/usr/local/instantclient on my Solaris x86 box) and the DBD::oracle module compiled & installed with no problems (using GCC 3.4.6).

Hopefully one or the other will work for Mohit.
