GLIBC problem with MySQL and DBI

Hi, I'm fairly new to linux, and very new to dealing with these problems. I have MySQL (latest) installed with ActiveState perl 5.6.1. I have some cgi scripts which need to grab database information from mysql by way of DBI (DBD::MySQL in this case). However, after installing the latest versions of both DBI and DBD::MySQL, I get the error message:

The error was install_driver(MySQL) failed: Can't load '/usr/local/ActivePerl-5.6/lib/site_perl/5.6.1/i686-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/mysql/' for module DBD::mysql: /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.6/lib/site_perl/5.6.1/i686-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/mysql/ symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference at /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.6/lib/5.6.1/i686-linux-thread-multi/
line 206.
Compilation failed in require at (eval 10) line 3.
Perhaps a required shared library or dll isn't installed where expected

I've look around the web and seen solutions for this problem relating to other programs but not perl. I have the latest RPM of Glibc installed. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Did you ever get an answer?

I'm running into the same exact thing. I assume it is probably some sort of easy fix, but for the life of me I don't know what. Hopefully, someone will post a solution for this...
