Subject: can't make sybperl
Date: Nov 5 1998 10:28PM
I am trying and failing to install sybperl-2.07 (to go along with perl
5.002 and sybase 10) on a machine running AIX 4.2.1. To keep things
simple, here is what I did:
1. Edit CONFIG.
I changed the Sybase definition to point to the sybase clientlib directory.
2. perl Makefile.PL
got minor errors now, but wait until step 4:
"sh: .././blib/man/man3/Sybase::BCP.3: 0403-005 Cannot create specified file"
"Couldn't install sh: .././blib/man/man3/Sybase::BCP.3"
Couldn't chmod 644, either
(however, when I look, it is there, set with 644)
"ld: 0711-327 WARNING: Entry point not found: _nostart"
3. Edit PWD
I provided a valid user, password, and database server
4. make test
got major error:
"Can't locate vars.pm in @INC at .././blib/Sybase/DBlib.pm line 224"
"Begin failed. Compilation aborted."
So I looked for vars.pm on the whole computer, and came up empty. Where
was this file supposed to come from? I suspect this a perl file, which
implies that I should re-install perl (I don't know anything about the
original perl installation). Where do I go next?
I know these are simple things, but perl is something I know little about,
especially on this level.
Thanks for your help.
