3 years ago, I posted about getting DBD::mysql to build on OSX 10.6 – it seems the same thing works on Mavericks (10.9) as well! # Failed test ‘use DBD::mysql;’ # at t/00base.t line 18. # Tried to use ‘DBD::mysql’. # Error: Can’t load ‘/Users/simon/.cpan/build/DBD-mysql-4.027-wbgMWL/blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle’ for module DBD::mysql: dlopen(/Users/simon/.cpan/build/DBD-mysql-4.027-wbgMWL/blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle, 2): Library not loaded: libmysqlclient.18.dylib # … Continue reading Installing DBD::mysql on Mavericks
I downloaded and installed MySQL Community Server 5.5.15 from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.5.html Using CPAN, I then tried to install DBD::mysql on a fresh install of OS X Lion and was presented with an error saying it was unable to load the library. # Error: Can’t load ‘/private/var/root/.cpan/build/DBD-mysql-4.019-H1RD6j/blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle’ for module DBD::mysql: dlopen(/private/var/root/.cpan/build/DBD-mysql-4.019-H1RD6j/blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle, 2): Library not loaded: libmysqlclient.18.dylib # … Continue reading DBD::mysql, MySQL and OS X Lion
As a followup to my previous MySQL bug post, I tried PostgreSQL and didn’t like it all that much. I found there was too much of a learning curve for someone who’s only really used MySQL to any great extent. It’s probably a better alternative for someone who is used to something like Oracle.
It seems that in gaining over 100,000 players, Kevan’s Urban Dead game has managed to find a bug in MySQL that causes corruption of indexes. Unfortunately no-one at MySQL AB is able to replicate the bug so it can’t be tracked down and fixed. More information can be found in the MySQL forum.
