*** You are using a perl configured with threading enabled.

The optional PlRPC-modules (RPC::PlServer etc) are not installed.
If you want to use the DBD::Proxy driver and DBI::ProxyServer
modules, then you'll need to install the RPC::PlServer, RPC::PlClient,
Storable and Net:
aemon modules. The CPAN Bundle:
BI may help you.
You can install them any time after installing the DBI.
You do *not* need these modules for typical DBI usage.
Optional modules are available from any CPAN mirror, in particular

Checking if your kit is complete...
I see you're using perl 5.008003 on i386-linux-thread-multi, okay.
Remember to actually *read* the README file!
Use 'make' to build the software (dmake or nmake on Windows).
Then 'make test' to execute self tests.
Then 'make install' to install the DBI and then delete this working
directory before unpacking and building any DBD::* drivers.
Writing Makefile for DBI
-- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
so it still doesn't work. any suggestions?
is it possible do install these manually? im assuminig it is.
thanks for the super quick responses!
