this list is for solving problems with BioPerl, not MySQL or the MySQL DBD
driver. i assume you have read this document:
it gives good advice; most linux distributions have already packaged MySQL and
DBD-MySQL for you, eg. in Fedora/Redhat, a "yum install perl-DBD-mysql" would
probably do everything for you.
