Subject:Cross compile mysql++ for PowerPC
View as plain text  
Hi All,
         I have an embedded application (running on a PowerPC in linux
environment) which accesses an external database. So my application needs
mysql++ libraries which needs to be built using a powerpc compiler. Before
building the libraries, I wanted to build mysql++ libraries for linux on my
Ubuntu VM to check the procedure. I downloaded the latest package from
[Official Website]( Then I followed the
steps mentioned.

1. Ran *./configure* from the root directory, I got the below error.

**checking for MySQL library directory... configure: error: Didn't find
mysqlclient library in '/usr/lib64 /usr/lib /usr/lib64/mysql /usr/lib/mysql
/usr/local/lib64 /usr/local/lib /usr/local/lib/mysql /usr/local/mysql/lib
/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql /usr/mysql/lib/mysql /opt/mysql/lib
/opt/mysql/lib/mysql /sw/lib /sw/lib/mysql'**

I tried locate mysqlclient and did not find any references, hence I
followed instructions given in other blogs and tried to install the
libmysqlclient15-dev using the below command.

*sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient15-dev*

The output is as shown below

After this I tried to locate libmysqlclient and I still couldn't find the
libraries (.so files). I tried *./configure* again and it failed in the
same location with the same error message. How can I install libmysqlclient

Once this is solved I will rebuild the mysql++ library using my toolchain
for powerpc. Has anyone tried this ? To build mysql++ library I need
mysqlclient, in the earlier example I would install it by executing the
command *apt-get*, but will the libraries would be compiled using a gnu
compiler. How to cross compile mysqlclient for powerpc ? I guess I need to
do the below

1. Build mysqlclient for powerpc.
2. Use those libraries and build mysql++ libraries for powerpc.
3. Use mysql++ and mysqlclient libraries in my application and compile for
