[JDEV] Re: Help with Jabber-1.4.2 and MySQL backend

Thank you for pointing out what I missed, I still have something wrong though.

I get the following error when I do a make clean and then a make:

/usr/bin/ld : cannot find -lmysqlclient
Collect2: ls returned 1 exit status
Make: *** [xdb_sql.so] Error 1

So I did a locate of mysqlclient and it returned the following:


I then tried substituting -lmysqlclient for -l/usr/lib/mysql/mysqlclient and I still got the same error.

Any suggestions?

Did you compile xdb_sql with the proper parameters in the Makefile ?
I had the same error until I modify the Makefile :

. Use this for CPPFLAGS :

. Add xdb_sql_mysql.o to the xdb_sql_OBJECTS list

. Change the following line as below (with no carriage return) :
    xdb_sql.so: $(xdb_sql_OBJECTS)
    $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(MCFLAGS) -o xdb_sql.so $(xdb_sql_OBJECTS)
    $(LDFLAGS)  $(LIBS) -static -lmysqlclient

Then make clean and make.

Hope this helps.
