I am having a problem setting up DBD::Oracle version 1.19 on a Debian Etch. I am running perl 5.8.8 and have dbi 1.53 (I believe) installed. I have instantclient-basic, instantclient-devel, and sqlplus installed. I can, without a problem, connect to my external DB Server via sqlplus. I have ORACLE_HOME and LD_LIB path set everything works great, and I am user root.
I have several times installed DBD::Oracle 1.19 on Debian Etch without any problem, BUT only with a FULL Oracle client. The installer needs x-server and I don't want an x on this server, nor do I want a full oracle client installed.
It just won't work with the inst client.
I am a total noobie to dbi and perl so bare with me!
I have this error, and I know that there are some fixes, but they all seem to be for older DBD:Oracle Makefiles.
