Subject: - Error connecting. ASE 15.0, OpenSuSE 10.3 x64
Date: Jan 24 2008 7:48PM

Hello Everyone,
I'm having trouble getting DBD::Sybase to work.
I've been looking around for answers to this problem, but I haven't been
able to find any...
I've got a new Linux box, 64 bit, with OpenSuSE 10.3 installed on it.
I downloaded and installed the Sybase 15.0 ASE with the OCS-15_0
libraries.  I had some problems getting the environment variables right,
but eventually after I read the documentation, I sourced the
file, and I was able to compile DBD::Sybase.  It ran all of the tests
correctly, and I passed 100%.  It seemed to work.
However, it didn't work.
When I run a Perl script to connect to the database, it crashes at this
line:  "require DBD::Sybase;"
With this error:
Can't load
e/' for module DBD::Sybase: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/ line 230.
at ./ line 34 Compilation failed in require at
./ line 34. 
(P1 )
I have verified that the and file are in their
respective locations, and are readable by everyone.
The file is in /opt/sybase/OCS-15_0/lib
Has anyone else seen this before?
Thanks for your help.
