Ok I'm a rookie, I honestly and openly admit it... Hope ya can help me
or at least point me in the right direction.... :-)

I am trying (still) to install RT 1.0.2 on a Sun (SunOS  5.7
Generic_106541-10 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-1) and I am stuck.

I have Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2209 and the documentation says:


First you need to install the DBI module.


I recommend trying automatic installation via the CPAN module. Try
perl -MCPAN -e shell

install Bundle::DBD::mysql


Ok, so I do this and I get:

t/akmisc............FAILED test 44
 Failed 1/351 tests, 99.72% okay
t/mysql.............FAILED test 23
 Failed 1/68 tests, 98.53% okay
Failed Test  Status Wstat Total Fail  Failed  List of failed

t/akmisc.t                  351    1   0.28%  44
t/mysql.t                    68    1   1.47%  23
1 test skipped.
Failed 2/17 test scripts, 88.24% okay. 2/732 subtests failed, 99.73%
make[1]: *** [test_dynamic] Error 29
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [test] Error 2
  /usr/local/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

Bundle summary: The following items seem to have had installation
  Unwrapped into directory
Mysql DBD::mysql


Ok so, are the failed tests serious (greek to me) and how do I force
this from the CPAN shell prompt if continuing is ok??


P.S. Have I mentioned I like Linux and RPMs even more now than I
realized. Getting all this stuff going was easy on the RedHat 6.1 i386
platform. I see how people can get sucked into using Windows too...
