Error

P: n/a
I have just upgraded MySQL from version 3.23 to version 4.1.8 and now I
am getting the following error when I try to run a script that worked:

install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't load
'/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.so'
for module DBD::mysql: libmysqlclient.so.10: cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line 229.
at (eval 1) line 3
Compilation failed in require at (eval 1) line 3.
Perhaps a required shared library or dll isn't installed where expected
at ./dbtest.pl line 37

I know that the answer is staring at me I just can't see it. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Further clarification:
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.so
is right where it should be.

rpm -qa My* shows:
MySQL-server-4.1.8-0
MySQL-Max-4.1.8-0
MySQL-client-4.1.8-0

find / -name libmysqlclient.so.10 finds nothing
find / -name libmysql* finds nothing

Have you also upgraded the perl DBI and DBD::mysql modules since
installing the new version of mysql? The DBD module in particular needs
to be compiled against the headers of the version of mysql you are using.

If you got your perl-DBD-MySQL module from an RPM see if you distro has
an updated version to use with MySQL v4.

Alternatively you could try to compile your own version of the module by
running (as root):

perl -MCPAN -e 'install DBD::mysql'

...and see if that works. If not you can download it from:

http://search.cpan.org/dist/DBD-mysql/

...and compile it manually

You need to install the MySQL-devel RPM to get the libmysqlclient
dynamic shared library.
