Hot Damn! Problem solved.
I've been flailing at this long enough that I had things
(especially me) in a somewhat confused state. I actually
had perl-DBI-1.32-5 and perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 installed,
I just couldn't get mysqld started. Whenever I ran the startup
script, safe_mysqld &, it immediately came back with
Your e-mail gave me that extra little bit of perl hubris to reboot.
I went to 'system settings' -> 'server settings' -> services
and selected mysqld, but didn't try to start it; I rebooted.
The system came up with mysqld running. And now the perl DBI works.
Thanks, that is a big relief.
