Subject:Small problem installing on FreeBSD
View as plain text  
I've installed MySQL on Linux more than a few times... so I got the
process down... however, now I am trying to install on FreeBSD.

This what I am doing...
1. tar zxvf mysql...freebsd.tar.gz -C /usr/local/mysql
2. cd /usr/local/mysql
3. ./configure (just to get the message)

I get the following...

/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found
WARNING: The host '' could not be looked up with
This probably means that your libc libraries are not 100 % compatible
with this binary MySQL version. The MySQL deamon, mysqld, should work
normally with the exception that host name resolving will not work.
This means that you should use IP addresses instead of hostnames
when specifying MySQL privileges !

Installing all prepared tables
/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found
Installation of grant tables failed!

Examine the logs in ./data for more information.
You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with:
./bin/mysqld --skip-grant &
You can use the command line tool
./bin/mysql to connect to the mysql
database and look at the grant tables:

but nothing is working... any ideas?
