Ok, i downloaded the MySQL packages through urpmi (im on mandrake 10.0) and downloaded the mysql++-1.7.40 tarbell from their website but when i try to compile it, i get this error:
checking for MySQL library directory... configure: error: Didn't find the mysql library dir in ' '
anyone know how to fix it?
Perhaps there's some kind of dev package of MySQL?
Or you need to pass a --with-mysql=/path/to/mysql/api to the configure script?
^yea, i thought about that after i posted, and it compiled (well... is compiling) now, and im hoping this is the file that has mysql.h... i really need that header file lol
and its not.. GGGGRRRRR!!!! i need to find what has that file...
Ok, i found what package has it... just got to download it now
Well check round the mysql website to see what the dependencies are for that file.
Did you check for other include directories?
Mine's here - /usr/include/mysql/mysql.h
Like you may have to say
gcc -I/usr/include/mysql prog.c
The "minus-aye" option telling the compiler additional directories where to look for header files.
Then there's "minus-ell" to tell the linker where to find library files.
:-/ i know its mysql-dev that has the file but i cant find a copy of it for mandrake...
I GOT IT!!! WOOOHOOO!!! now i can get back to coding my MUD! :D
