Vincent, Chris, and list,

I updated DBD::mysql (there was a new version released yesterday) and I can
now view the main opac page and the main intranet page. However, all queries
fail due to a timezone related error with Date::Manip::Date_TimeZone . If I
cannot get to the bottom of it, I will post here.

Thank you, guys.

Oups, I would say it's too early ;-)

Yes, there is the same situation as php for DBD::MySQL perl module:
