    You can get MySQL from mysql.com

    gosh, thanks for the helpful response. i did search before posting.

    i cant find any reference on mysql to .tgz clientlibs, only rpms. i made a slight typo, install docs refer to mysql-standard-4.1.10a-clientlibs.tgz not mysql-standard-4.1.15-clientlibs.tgz but still cant find either.

    I think what he's referring to is the fact that the build wants both:

    mysql-standard-4.1.10a-pc-linux-gnu-i686.tar.gz
    mysql-standard-4.1.10a-clientlibs.tgz

    But, on mysql.com, there is no package with "clientlibs". There is only the standard tar.gz binary, and the mysql source.

    There *is* a clientlibs in the binary RPM's, but not standard tar.gz.

    I hadn't gotten as far as handling that in the build script I'm working on, but my plan was to download the source and create the clientlibs tgz it's looking for.

    Default clientlibs.tgz

    My bad - here's what's in the clientlibs.tgz:

    [marcmac@depot RHEL4]$ tar tvzf mysql-standard-4.1.10a-clientlibs.tgz
    lrwxrwxrwx root/root 0 2005-03-01 12:31:15 libmysqlclient.so -> libmysqlclient.so.14.0.0
    lrwxrwxrwx root/root 0 2005-03-01 12:31:15 libmysqlclient.so.14 -> libmysqlclient.so.14.0.0
    -rwxr-xr-x root/root 1133466 2005-02-14 02:06:07 libmysqlclient.so.14.0.0

    aha! that did the trick, thanks.

    im building on debian, so installed libmysqlclient14 from apt, copied libmysqlclient.so.14.0.0 to temp directory, created the symlinks and then made the tarball. is there a more 'official' way of doing this? i've always wondered why mysql dont include shared libs in their tars

    Default Official way...

    I'm not sure why they don't include them either - and, the don't offer a clientlib rpm for every system they offer a binary build for...

    The way I build the thirdparty stuff is to generally do an install build into /opt/zimbra/whatever-version, and tar that up for insertion into the packages. THis is to save time during builds, since I don't upgrade the 3rd party stuff every time I do a build (I run about 20 builds a day, on various platforms).

    Default what is mysql-standard-4.1.10a-clientlibs.tar.gz ???

    On MySQL website, on the 4.1.10a download page, there's nothing about mysql-standard-4.1.10a-clientlibs.tar.gz.

    What should I do so I can compile Zimbra on FC4?

    Thanks.

    Default two choices

    You can either:

    download the source, and tar up the client libs into this package (just the .so files, tar cf blah.tgz .)

    or

    FInd the client lib RPM, install it, and tar them up from that.
