that (implied) that the module was already in place on the machine -
it is included in the pre-built ipkg install of Perl 5.8.6.
I don't know how magically "DynaLoader" works ... but the platofrm
specific bit that Slimserver is looking for is sitting under that
Anyway - if I leave Slimserver running for a few more minutes then
it continues on and brings up another error. I think that this next
error means that I need the DBI.so built for the NSLU2.
As I'm am pretty new to all of this - I have quite worked out what
is safe to do and whether or not I'll end up putting things in the
wrong place or filling up the Linksys area of the device.
I know that if I try to make my own then I'll need "make" etc - but
I think I'll ask the person who built Perl for the device to give
some advice as well. If anyone else knows then please do say.
