Subject:error loading mysql++ library
View as plain text  

I'm trying to link the mysql++ library with a simple program and am having some trouble.
The examples compile and run fine, so I hope it's something simple I've overlooked.

I'm using gcc and in my makefile I have the following lines to include the appropriate
mysql and mysql++ header files and libraries:

# path for mySQL header files
CCFLAGS += -I/usr/include/mysql

# path for mySQL++ header files
CCFLAGS += -I/usr/local/include/mysql++

# path for mySQL client library
LDFLAGS += -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient

# path for mySQL++ library
LDFLAGS += -L/usr/local/lib -lmysqlpp

my program seems to compile and link fine. Here is part of the make output:

--- Linking /home/xanadu/test/bin/testProgram
/usr/bin/g++ /home/xanadu/test/src/  -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient
-L/usr/local/lib -lmysqlpp -lnsl -lm -o /home/xanadu/test/bin/testProgram

Yet when I attempt to run the program, it appears unable to find the mysql++ library and
gives this error:

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No
such file or directory

Yet the libraries appear to be in /usr/local/lib where I told make they would be. Here's
my listing of the usr/local/lib directory:

[xanadu@xanadu src]$ ls -l /usr/local/lib
total 1540
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root     834 Aug 25 12:38
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      19 Aug 25 12:38 ->
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      19 Aug 25 12:38 ->
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 1551825 Aug 25 12:38

What have I missed?

thanks again for your help!
