I am running suse 9.1 linux and have managed to install the DBI but cannot install the mysql module, i just get an error when i try to make command it. An error occurred while linking the DBD::mysql driver. The error message seems to indicate that you don't have a libz.a, or a libz.so. This is typically resolved by:
1.) You may try to remove the -lz or -lgz flag from the libs list
= by using the --libs switch for "perl Makefile.PL".
2.) On Red Hat Linux install libz-devel
3.) On other systems, please contact the mailing list
For further hints, see INSTALL.html, section Linker flags.
make: *** [blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.so] Error 1
