I am running ./configure for a program that I am about to compile but it fails with
checking mysql/mysql.h usability... yes
checking mysql/mysql.h presence... yes
checking for mysql/mysql.h... yes
checking for main in -lmysqlclient... no
configure: error: The MySQL library cannot be found.
I have MYSQL installed and use it all the time but yet when the check was made it say the client can not be found
type mysql at the command line works linux noob so please go slow :-)
