Alright, I just installed MySQL on my Web server, and it seems to work fine. I've got the client, devel, and server packages installed. However, I need to install the DBD::mysql Perl module for a message board. I used the CPAN module, and entered the following command:

install Bundle::DBD::mysql

However, I keep getting weird error messages. When it gets to the part about writing the Makefile, it prints out an error like "can't exec "mysql_config"". Anyone have any ideas? I'm somewhat new with the MySQL/Perl thing, and so haven't really heard of the mysql_config file before. Thanks for any insight.

Oh, here's some more info.

When the CPAN module gets to the make install stage, it fails with this error:

code:
make test had returned with bad status; won't install without force
Bundle summary: The following items in Bundle::DBD::mysql had installation problems:
DBD::mysql
