DBD-ORACLE-1.15 on HPUX 11.23 Itanium
Message ID:

Has anyone got DBD-Oracle 1.15 going on HPUX 11.23 Itanium with Oracle

There is a lot of info re 64bit PA-RISC but very little with Itanium.  Most of the info in the README.hpux and the various forums are very misleading as it makes assumptions that HPUX 11i is the PA RISC versions.

I can not seem to get a clean build of perl5.8.5.  So my next fall back is perl 5.8.3 binary from the which at least does not have THREADS linked in.  The other options are 5.8.0, and 5.8.2 from HP's DSPP site, but they all have multi threading linked in.

However the perl 5.8.3 is built with gcc.

1.  The Makefile.PL could not find oratypes.h.  For whatever reason  this file now seems to be in $ORACLE_HOME/plsql/public.  I amended the makefile.PL to fix this.
2.  make fails as +DD64 is included in the compile lines.  I have seen in some forum notes that this needs to be removed for gcc. I did this and it compiles ok.
3.  make test fails 8/9 tests with:

# make test
        rm -f blib/arch/auto/DBD/Oracle/
        LD_RUN_PATH="/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/lib32:/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/rdbms/lib32" /usr/bin/ld  -b -L/usr/local/lib -L/opt/

and they do all fail.
