Description Wade Minter 2002-12-08 15:47:30 EST
Description of Problem:

Did an upgrade from Psyche-->GinGin1-->GinGin2.  Attempted to run a Perl
application with a database call, and got:

/usr/bin/perl: relocation error:
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.so:
undefined symbol: mysql_init

The following reduced testcase generates the bug, too.

#######
use DBI;

$dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:mysql","root","password");
$query = "SELECT * FROM users";
my $sth=$dbh->prepare($query);
$sth->execute;
$sth->finish;
#####
