    Install Perl DBD module to interface with Oracle

    I've installed Perl 5.6.1 on Solaris 8 and Perl DBI 1.37 module. When I try to install DBD:Oracle 1.14 module, it complains:

    Using DBI 1.37 installed in /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/sun4-solaris/auto/DBI

    Configuring DBD::Oracle ...

    Especially if you have any problems.

    The ORACLE_HOME environment variable must be set.
    It must be set to hold the path to an Oracle installation directory

    Has anybody tried this on 9i yet?

    My sys admin and I have been unsuccessful and he thinks it is not supported with Oracle 9. Here is an email conversation I recently had with my sys admin that contains the relevant links. Sorry I can't be of any help but we are obviously having problems too - not just the 32 bit /64-bit issue in one of the links).

    Hi Frank,

    This is the latest version that states to support 8 only. Can you ask him (Jeff ) what version he is using and where he downloaded it from?

    Here is proof that DBD (dbi) is being used with Oracle 9i (9.2) on Solaris.
    Please re-initiate our efforts to get DBD installed and working.

    The original problem back in December 2001:
