Description Lee Reynolds 2008-04-28 23:36:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Perl scripts that include 'use Mysql;' fail

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easy to reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -e "use Mysql;"
Actual results:

Can't locate Mysql.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at -e line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

Expected results:

No errors.  The syntax above has worked with every version of Redhat/Fedora from
7.3 on.

Additional info: This bug is also in Fedora 8 as bug # 444556 
However it is NOT present in Fedora 7.  My current work-around for this problem
is to compile perl-DBD-MySQL-3.0007-1 from Fedora 7 and install it instead.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-05-22 09:58:45 EDT
There was change in code befoer 10 years. It looks like you need 'use
DBD::mysql;' instead of 'use Mysql;'.

From http://search.cpan.org/~capttofu/DBD-mysql-3.0008/lib/Mysql.pm#DESCRIPTION

"As of March 1998, the Msql and Mysql modules are obsoleted by the DBI drivers
DBD::mSQL and DBD::mysql, respectively. You are strongly encouraged to implement
new code with the DBI drivers. In fact, Msql and Mysql are currently implemented
as emulations on top of the DBI drivers."
