Java error connecting database from perl


While i am trying to connect to Oracle database from Perl using DBI module,am getting the error as follows :

Can't load '/usr/local/fuseperl-modules/lib/i586-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/Oracle/' for module DBD::Oracle: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i586-linux-thread-multi/ line 229.

I am confident in the case that the driver DBD::Oracle was installed.

Can anyone suggest,what is happening and why?

With Regards

Anyway what the above code will represent?

It seems to me some problem with Perl module that properly not installed or might be the lib path ( files in different location.

So why I asked for
#echo $ORACLE_HOME/lib >> /etc/

Here it will put all the .so files with in /etc/ files.

# ldconfig

After executing the above command it will get affect mean to say it will read all these .so files location.

One suggestion you can verify whether that files (.pm) is existing or not
"/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i586-linux-thread-multi/ "

## find / -name

Then compare the location .. If it is not there that mean Your driver DBD perl module didn't compile properly.

ok,fine.Thank you.

The problem was solved now.I set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$ORACLE_HOME/lib".I think this was the same idea you gaven.Now it's working fine.

Thanks for your time and effort
