  • Hi,

    DBD::MySQL and DBD::Pg pre-installed by default are nice however it is missing the crucial libraries LIBMYSQL.DLL and LIBPQ.DLL.

    It becomes a problem if some other module detects e.g. DBD::MySQL as present and tries to use it - than an error dialogue (GUI) with a message about missing DLL pops up.

    What was the original intention? Should all DLL be included in strawberry distribution or should the users get LIBMYSQL.DLL and LIBPQ.DLL get from somewhere else?

    • As Alias said, we meant to include everything.

      Because of that, we had to make a quick decision to rebuild, and during that rebuild, pull the PostgreSQL support for the final.

      The reason for that is explained at http://csjewell.dreamwidth.org/1710.html [dreamwidth.org].

      The MySQL client DLL is in the rebuild as of now, and it is uploaded to the URL's above.

      • Hi,

        Firstly, thanks for the fix.

        As I am not allowed to put comments on dreamwidth.org I put my feedback to libpq.dll issues here:

        1) I agree that MSVCRT80.DLL (part of MS Visual C redistributables) is a problem and we cannot just simply copy this dll into strawberry distribution. On the other hand I do not understand why are the official Pg binaries built in this way - the only reason could be building Pg via MS Visual C/C++ Express edition that does not contain some static libraries and forces the developers

        • Can I have you hold up for just a bit before you go and build a MingW PostgreSQL for me? (We're now talking October release, so we have some time to decide.) I'll need to check on whether we want to include ssl or not.

          When you do build it, and if we say yes on building OpenSSL into it, if you could build it against the Shining Light Productions compilation of OpenSSL (it includes MingW libraries), it'd be much appreciated.

          If we decide to go the OpenSSL-including route, I'd like to be able to build everything against the same OpenSSL, and once SL's OpenSSL is installed, I've had NO problems with building Net::SSLeay on Strawberry myself. :)
