10.3: DBD::mysql install trouble and fix
Authored by: rcasey on Nov 11, '04 06:30:38PM

Dude, you rock. I am installing Bugzilla on a Solaris 9 system, running Perl 5.8.5 and an already existing Mysql 3.23.xx server. At first, I installed the Bundle::Bugzilla package, but it failed on the DBD::Mysql install. I then tried doing a CPAN install of just the DBD:Mysql package would 'make', but 'make test' would fail and then going ahead with the install resulted in a broken package.

I performed a CPAN install of Bundle::Msql and selected the option to just install Mysql. It went through without a hitch and it even provided prompts for me to specify database name and user settings to test the database with. I am now well on my way to getting Bugzilla up and running. Bundle::Msql seems to be the way to go!
