php5 and mysql not working on Slackware RC4 (edited title)


I have upgraded my 10.2 system to Slackware-current. I can't get php working. It is looking for libmysqlclient.so.14 when it should be looking for xxx.so.15. According to the change log (or my interpretation of it), the php5 package was recompiled for the new mysql version (5.0.24 in my case).

Before I recompile php myself (which I do not have fond memories of doing last time), is there something else I can do or check? Do I misunderstand the change log?

Thanks,
Brian

Sim link 'libmysqlclient.so.14' to point to the actual lib file. Should solve the problem with no hastle.

Thanks for the response.

I had a mysqli-5.0.5 package still installed. Removed that and reinstalled the php package and I can now start php. However, I am still not able to load the mysql extension. I've tried with php4 and php5. php --info shows that it was compiled with mysql.

I have the mysql-5.0.24-i486-1 package installed but have PHP 5.1.6 compiled from sources. When I upgraded mysql to that version I got the same error - unfortunately the symlink didn't fix the problem for me. Recompiling PHP fixed it so the only good news I can off is that the following was painless on my install:
Code:
./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-openssl --with-mysql=/usr/lib/mysql
make
su -
make install
I use the php.ini-recommended ini file as well...

Still no joy.

I just installed the latest (Sep 3) recompiles of mysql and php5. The mysql extensions continue to fail.

Gilead,
I did try to recompile php, but had one problem after another and got frustrated/ran out of time. I do need a bunch more configure options than you gave in your example:-(. The Slackware configure should have all I need, if it would only work as advertised.

OK, this was all my own stupidity. I forgot to replace my old php.ini with the new one. Now works like a charm.
