Perl DBI Module

  • I'm trying to install the DBI module in perl to access mysql DBs through a perl script on my pfsense box, but I just keep hitting brick walls…

    The Perl CPAN module throws an error because I don't have make installed (Why is that, BTW? Can we get a FULL full install made pretty please?)

    and if I copy over the built module from the CPAN tar, or from a full FreeBSD 6.3 install, I get the following error:
    Can't locate loadable object for module DBI in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/BSDPAN /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ line 263
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ line 263.
    Compilation failed in require at ./ line 4.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./ line 4.

    Anybody have ANY ideas?  I'm pulling my hair out at this point...and yes, does exist in @INC, specifically in /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8

  • Found a couple solutions…easiest one is```
    pkg_add -r http://filename
