Perl-DBD-MySQL was built against an older version of MySQL, from the
message you can tell it was MySQL 4.1.22, so you need that version of
the shared client library.
(Strictly speaking, you don't need 4.1.22 specifically, any version that
uses the same ABI will do, which should be any 4.1 version; they all are
version 14 of the library interface.)
(You even have version 10 of the library installed, which is really old
With the RPMs built and published by the MySQL team, you will get that
in the "shared-compat" RPM that corresponds to your platform.
Until now, "shared-compat" will conflict with "shared", as it also
contains the current version of the shared client library. So you need
to uninstall "shared" and install "shared-compat".
We intend to change that, probably with the upcoming version 5.5.6:
From then onward, you can (un)install a "shared-compat" RPM without
affecting the "shared" RPM, as then the "shared-compat" will contain
only the previous versions of the client library and not the current one.
If you don't want to install MySQL from RPMs, you can still take a
"shared-compat" RPM and use "rpm2cpio" to extract libmysqlclient.so.14
from it. You could do the same with a 4.1 package, but I think they are
removed from the archive by now as they are really outdated.
An alternative would be to get a newer Perl-DBD-MySQL package that was
built using a more current version of MySQL, or to build that from
source using the current MySQL.
The choice is yours,
