I was just doing a new Bugzilla install and discovered that Msql-Mysql seems to have been replaced with Bundle::Mysql. This needs to be changed in the docs, checksetup.pl (where it tells you how to install the MySQL modules), and possible Bundle::Bugzilla. I don't know for sure about Bundle::Bugzilla because I had given up on using it due to the fact that it wanted me to install perl 5.6.1 (I since discovered that Data::Dumper seems to be what wanted to force the 5.6.1 upgrade)
Mine! The issue with reinstalling a whole perl cannot be solved, it has to do with the way that perl and the libs link. Even if you installed the modules manually through CPAN (without Bundle::Bugzilla), the same problem would happen. Can we update the docs to explain this? I'll update Bundle::Bugzilla to use Bundle::Mysql.

I skipped the installation of Data::Dumper when I did it manually and everything seems to be working fine. The install docs say that Data::Dumper is included already with most perl installations and is only there as a "failsafe". Still hapily running 5.6.0 :)
Zach: Are you saying it's impossible to install the latest version of Data::Dumper via CPAN unless you also upgrade Perl? If that is the case, then I really need to look at providing complete manual installation instructions, including where to download obsolete versions for people running 5.003 through 5.6.0... Let me know which way to go on this; I want to be able to support as many versions of Perl as possible, to have Bugzilla flexibly integrate into as many environments as we can think of.
I don't know that for a fact, but it's what I have heard. Not sure who mentioned that, might have been justdave... cc'ing. Will update the cpan bundle soon.
I don't know about Data::Dumper, but I know a good number of items installed via CPAN will in one way or another wind up having a dependency on Perl 5.6.0. As far as the Mysql thing, I've always installed it as "DBD::mysql" and that seems to work fine.
Bundle::Bugzilla fixed! WIll be up on mirrors soon! Assigning to barnboy to get docs to say anything that they need to say.

the version check and module install instructions in checksetup.pl have been fixed in another bug earlier this week. That just leaves the docs....
Note: Bundle::Bugzilla still tries to install Data::Dumper and so tries to install Perl 5.6.1 for you. This totally stuffed up my recent attempt at an install on my laptop, and I had to do it all by hand, the old fashioned way :-( Gerv
Changed it to "Bundle::Mysql" in the Guide.
