The Views module does not make use of MySQL views. As far as the  
database is concerned* all Views module does is build queries and run  
them just like any other query in Drupal. If the errors are SQL  
related you should take a look at the SQL views is generating and  
review that against your schema. I would wager that you most likely  
have a database schema that is out of date, and you need to run  
update.php. If the errors are PHP related, it is probably an  
incompatible version of PHP itself.


* I know that Views does so much more and then some, however all the  
RDBMS will see is just another select query.
