Add some echos to /etc/profile to make sure it's really being executed, maybe. > 2.

Edit /etc/rc.conf and add your path to ldconfig_paths, or create a small startup script to put in /usr/local/etc/rc.d with the command "ldconfig -m /usr/local/wherever_libmysqlclient.so_is". /etc/ld.so.conf is a Linuxism. Or solve both of your problems at once by removing /usr/local/mysql and installing the /usr/ports/databases/mysql40-client and mysql40-server ports :) -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
