Certain scripts have been converted to use the perl bindings in accessing the Mythconverg database. (Explain here the good reasons this was done...) (When did this happen; which version of MythTV?)
Scripts converted to use bindings
- (list others here)
You must have the MySQL DBD and the DBI interface modules installed. If not, running a converted script will result in an error message similar to the following:
Can't locate DBI.pm in @INC
(Do virtually all Linux systems come with this pre-installed?)
Just install libmythtv-perl BEFORE compiling
Macintosh OS X Install
The instructions from http://www.quicomm.com/apm_dbddbi.htm worked for me.
Note: I tried installing via CPAN and MacPorts but perl still could not find the DBI/DBD modules. I don't know why.
