depends... in most cases, you can move the libs around without too many problems. this is assuming you're using the same o/s on the boxes. essentially, this is what rpm installs do. the only problems that could occur would be with kernel version headers, or obscure compiler problems, which are very rare.

thanx

To be more specific. I am taking MySQL header and lib files compiled on a RH6.1 box to a CobaltRaQ server. I believe that the CRQ is based on a RH7.1 structure. But I cant mess anything up. If you know what I mean.

there shouldn't be any problems. if you want to be perfectly safe, then you might want to recompile the MySQL package on the 7.1 system. i seriously don't see any problem just copying the files tho. the main difference between upgrades on distros are usually just new kernels and slightly tweaked install and boot scripts. the meat is 99% the same.

all this is, of course, assuming that you're using the same processor architecture on both the 61. and 7.1... (just making sure )
