Gururaj, this kind of message should go to the general mailing list,
mysql@stripped; this isn't a bug in MySQL, and is not a full
bug report (with a repeatable test case, etc.).

It looks like you downloaded the wrong binary version for your
system.  But you did not tell us what operating system you are

Please use the 'mysqlbug' program (in the mysql bin directory) and
send this report to mysql@stripped, giving as many details
about your setup as possible.
