Subject RE: Segfault when connecting during Apache startup with Apache::DBI
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2008 12:15:13 GMT
On AIX 5.2 I am using Perl 5.8.0, MySQL 5.0.51a, Apache 2.2.28, mod_perl
2.04, DBI 1.604 and DBD 4.0007 and it all works good.

The latest DBD::mysql really seems to be the culprit. Even on a freshly
installed Ubuntu 8.04 with the stock Perl 5.8.8 but self-compiled MySQL
5.0.51a, Apache 1.3.41, mod_perl 1.30, DBI 1.605 and DBD 4.0007 I'm
getting segmentation faults. After installing DBD 4.0004 everything
works fine. Of course, I made sure that the correct MySQL library was

I can't understand what 4.0007 is still doing on CPAN as the most recent
version. But maybe this still is an Ubuntu and/or MP1 related thing -
even with most components rolled by myself ...

Now if I could just get rid of those annoying random "Commands out of
sync" and "Lost connection to MySQL server during query" errors that
happen once in a while ...
