I've just been through all of this so I do have some advice.
The installation error your getting happens because Perl and Mysql
were compiled using different compilers. The Mysql depot files
were probably compiled using gcc while your version of perl used the
If you look in the INSTALL or the README they give you a cheat on how
to bypass this. Though I was unable to get it to work. Your best
bet is to download and install gcc and compile perl AND mysql with that.
Make sure to download the libstdc++ as well as the gcc compiler.
Or I could just send you a tar file of the version of Perl I just compiled.
Let me know,

Subject: HPUX libmysqlclient.a compiled w/ +z option??
I am looking into cutting a present database system over to Mysql.
However I have had a hell of a time with the porting between Solaris
2.5.1 (where I got everything to work) and HPUX 10.20 (where it will
eventually run permently). Under Solaris I installed Mysql and the
Data-Dumper, DBI 1.06, and Msql-Mysql-modules 1.2014 for perl (and Perl
5.004). Everything works great under Solaris 2.5.1 but I need the same
scripts and a Mysql database running under HPUX 10.20 and that has
turned into an extremely frustrating task.
I could not get Mysql 3.22 to compile under HPUX (but I'm not a heavy
programmer and I just want it installed and working). I read the mailing
lists and instructions and tried the various suggestions from posting
with no luck. So I used the binary HP depot for Mysql 3.21 and finally
got that working under HPUX 10.20. The Data-Dumper and DBI perl modules
seemed to install ok
However, the Msql-Mysql-modules 1.2014 gives the following errors
complaining about the libmysqlclient.a file when I issue "perl

You're building on HP-UX with the HP compiler
You might get a warning at the link stage of:

You'll have to recompile libmysqlclient.a from the mysql

part of the lines above were cut off after 80 characters, but that is
basically the error.
So my questions, has anybody gotten perl access to Mysql working under
HPUX 10.20?? If so did you
have to recompile the libmysqlclient.a file independently with +Z and if
so how do I do that?? I had to load
the binary HP depot because I can't get anywhere compiling Mysql from
scratch. Could somebody send me
the libmysqlclient.a file?? Is there an easy command to recompiler this
finally can the recompile be done w/ the HPUX cc compiler because I've
getting the gcc compiler to work correctly when I was trying to compile
any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm about ready to give up but
continue to think I'm close. I thought since the
Perl modules loaded under Solaris no problem they would as well under
HPUX, guess it's not that simple.
thanxs for any help.
