In attempting to install Bugzilla on a Redhat 9 system, with MySQL 4.0.13 RPMs installed I ran into some trouble. I wanted to take the easy way out and use 'perl -MCPAN -e "install Bundle::Bugzilla" to make sure I had all the right perl modules to get bugzilla up and running, but for some reason DBD::mysql wouldn't compile, the problem appears to have been related to the default LANG setting on RH9 which wasn't handled well by the DBD::mysql build process. The solution is simply"unset LANG; perl Makefile.PL; make"

I was able to track this down in the perl.dbi.users newsgroup, here I have also put the complete text of the posting in the extended part of this entry entry.

Yesssss!!!!!! It works!!! Thank you very much!! But, finally, what is it the wrong side? Is it the perl-RH9 version? However some packages did compile well even if the LANG var was setted. [on my machine I have LANG=en_US.UTF-8] With the perl-RH8 version I hadn't this problems!
