I've been searching high and low for answer to this conundrum. I've found 
quite a few references to the problem, but no helpful answers so far. I've 
even posted to the mod_perl and perl DBI mailing list (and have just been 
ignored, sigh. I guess I should have some here first, eh? Well my lesson is 
learn'd. ;-).

I am running:

RedHat 5.2,
Linux Kernel 2.2.18 #2,
Apache 1.3.14
Perl 5.00502, (complied on the box replacing the default install)
(I also have run the H2PH converter, but might have missed an include 
mod_perl (via DSO) version 1.25
gcc version
(I do not have embed perl installed.)

I've used CPAN to install the latest and greatest Bundle::DBI as well as 

I'm trying to run mod_perl as a DSO under Apache 1.3.14. (I can 
successfully run Perl CGI scripts that use good olde regular DBI.)

Here is the error message:

Syntax error on line 1226 of /web/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i686-linux/auto/DBI/DBI.so'
         for module DBI:

         /usr/lib/perl5/5.00502/i686-linux/DynaLoader.pm line 168.

         BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
         /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/Apache/DBI.pm line 4.

What other info might anyone need to help me solve this? Recommendations 
and ideas appreciated.
