how to install osmDB.pm - when there allready a MySQL-db is installed?
good day dear perl-gurus,
i run opensuse 13.1 and i allready have installed mysql db - it is up and running.
i want to do some work with openstreetmap-data and perl - retrieving data ( Pois ) from a planet-file and stoging them in the database - see all my intention
in an overview http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Tagtheworld
i think it is interesting to use osmDB.pm
regarding the use of OsmDB.pm - what it does for me;
Install mysql server
change root password (maybe create user/password for osm use)
create osmdb.ini in program folder and put in two lines (user=name AND password=abc)
create database(s) (tables, indexes etc. will be handled by osmDB.pm)
Install perl DBI module
put osmDB.pm in module folder (like osm.pm)
note; i allready have installed the mysql-databae.
does this create any conflict if i now try to install osmDB.pm?
Or can i try to install it - and go round all the conflicts?
love to hear from you
