Subject: 'make test' fails on DBD::Sybase .94
Date: Aug 27 2002 8:15PM

I'm having trouble getting DBD::Sybase to work.  I'm working on SunOS
5.8 using perl 5.6.1, FreeTDS (not sure of the version; it was the
latest snapshot as of August 18), DBI 1.30, and DBD:Sybase 0.94.

I've installed FreeTDS under my home directory.  It seems to work OK,
at least well enough that I can use it with sqsh (v. 2.1) to sign onto
my Sybase database.  DBD::Sybase makes OK, but when I run 'make test',
I get the following output on stdout:

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/bin/perl -Iblib/arch -Iblib/lib -I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/sun4-solaris -I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1 -e 'use Test::Harness qw(&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;' t/*.t
	Test returned status 0 (wstat 11, 0xb)

t/xblob.t  	   0    11     6    3  50.00%  3, 5-6

Also, stderr gives me:

Can't call method "execute" on an undefined value at t/fail.t line 66.
Can't call method "execute" on an undefined value at t/place.t line 64.
DBD::Sybase::db do failed: Server message number=2714 severity=16 state=1 line=1 server=TEST text=There is already an object named 'blob_test' in the database.
Failed 5/9 test scripts, 44.44% okay. 28/69 subtests failed, 59.42% okay.
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 2

Umm, let's see, in my environment I have 

(I've also tried
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/taylor/freetds/lib:/usr/local/lib with the
same result.)

I wonder whether I have a library conflict with my build of perl.
Running 'perl -V:libs' gives me:

libs='-lsocket -lnsl -lgdbm -ldb -ldl -lm -lc';

and if I were trying to install sybperl, it's my understanding
that the db lib would be causing conflicts.  Is it the same deal
with Sybase::DBD?  I'd rather not rebuild perl if I don't have to,
but I kinda need to get this thing working if I can.

So, anybody have any helpful suggestions?
