Msql-Mysql-modules is the old name for what is now DBD::mysql.  The
latter is essentially the former with a new name.  All current development
takes place with DBD::mysql.  Not sure why you got the error that you did,
though.  Possibly your version of MySQL is simply too old for it, though
I doubt it.
