Subject: DBD::Sybase - "make" seems fine, but "make test" produces many errors
Date: Nov 9 2004 11:12PM

Greetings Sybperl Folks,

This is on Solaris 8, using gcc 2.95.3 and perl 5.8.5.
I am using Sybase 11.0.3 and Open Client library 
version 10.0.4 at this time.
I have tried making a few of the 1.x versions of 
DBD::Sybase, but these errors are for version 1.04_12.

I have put in various values for LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
(nothing, /usr/sybase/lib, ...) and I have alternately 
included and commented out the 'tli' library in CONFIG.

The "make test" errors look like this:
t/autocommit....install_driver(Sybase) failed:
  Can't load 'blib/arch/auto/DBD/Sybase/' 
  for module DBD::Sybase: /docs/perl/bin/perl: fatal: relocation error:
  file /usr/sybase/lib/ symbol svr4_tli: 
  referenced symbol not found at 
  /docs/perl/lib/5.8.5/sun4-solaris/ line 230.

More complete information can be found here:

I want to have DBD::Sybase and sybperl modules installed 
and working with no errors so we can start using them. 
I have decrepit, old versions of perl and sybperl and 
would like to move off of them, and I will be moving to 
Sybase 12.5 in the near future. 

Can somebody steer me the right direction? Thanks in 
advance for any help you can provide!

Troy Johnson
