Angry Jabber cant find mysql


Hey guys,

Hopefully one of you guys can help with out with this. Im trying to install Jabberd 2.0rc2, and It can't find mysql, but it finds everything else that I have installed, OpenSSL ect ect:

Quote:
checking for MySQL in the standard places... no
checking for MySQL in /usr/include/mysql and /usr/lib... no
checking for MySQL in /usr/local... no
checking for MySQL in /usr/include/mysql and /usr/lib/mysql... no
checking for MySQL in /usr/local/include/mysql and /usr/local/lib/mysql... no
checking for MySQL in /usr/local/include/mysql and /usr/local/lib... no
checking for MySQL in /sw/include/mysql and /sw/lib... no
configure: error: Could not find MySQL
That is what I got in my ssh session when running ./configure

I have tried using ./configure --with-mysql=var/lib (rpm find - listed this is a dir so I tried it for fun anyways) that didn't work.

My Mysql server ver is: 3.23.58
Im using redhat 9.

Also, I know for a fact that mysql is working normally, becasue, I have two databases using mysql (fourm software and phpnuke) does anyone have any ideas what I can do to get ./configure to work?

Thanks
Nick

You could install PostgreSQL and use that ./configure --help tells you the sythnax to use. I don't want to do that though..

I love topic subscriptions

hi r5a,
According to the Jabber 2 manual, a minimum requirement of MySQL 4.0 is needed for installing Jabber 2.

Tried that

I was using MySQL 4. The bottom line is that I continued having soooooo many problems with RedHat - I don't know what it is but the package finding and installing is a joke.

So, I downloaded and tried Debian and I will never go back to RedHat. Apt-get RULES! My Jabber server rocks and everyone here at the office is pleased. We are using Rhymbox for the cool emoticons.

I will never - I mean NEVER install RedHat again, (though it is pretty), with Webmin I never go to the desktop anyway.

I really thought about switching to Debian, problem is i have so much junk and stuff to transfeer over.

I was also going to use Rhymebox. If needed, i could always get KDE on debain.

Talking debian

Well, if RedHat is working or you, then by all means stick with it. RedHat will continue to grow in popularity and more people will use it. But I ran into a LOT of dependency problems when getting SSL, Net::SSleay, MySQL, and Jabber all to work together.

To install kde on debian, you just type apt-get install kdebase

You need to have x working, etc, but you get the point. If debian decides it needs to install dependent packages because of the install you have requested, it finds those packages and installs them too.

Finally, using webmin's software installation feature with debian packages is awesome.

Don't get me wrong - debian does not have the packages assembled for new programs and versions like RedHat, but if it is listed as a stable package, it works.

But, if it ain't broke, why fix it?
