I am trying to load my GFF file to mysql database but I got this error
when I ran the bp_seqfeature_load.pl ( bioperl 1.6.1 on  MAC)

[BioComplexity-5:/usr/local/bin] minh% perl bp_seqfeature_load.pl
install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't locate DBD/mysql.pm in @INC (@INC

Perhaps the DBD::mysql perl module hasn't been fully installed,
or perhaps the capitalisation of 'mysql' isn't right.
Available drivers: DBM, ExampleP, File, Gofer, Proxy, Sponge.

I am using MAC OSX version 10.4.10 and MAMP? Isnt it the
"/Library/Perl/5.8.6" already in @INC? What am I missing?
I have been googling this error for a few hours. I also install
Bioperl and reinstall DBD::mysql using CPAN. It still doesnt work..

Here is my $PERL5LIB:  /sw/lib/perl5:/sw/lib/perl5/darwin/

I really need help on this.
Thank you,
