Re: mariadb-mysql command-line problem on CentOS 5.5 i386



To figure out which library is being linked in dynamically (ie, the
wrong one) use the 'ldd' tool.

ldd $(which mysql) | grep mysql
ldd /path/to/the/binary | grep mysql

for example:
[justin.swanhart@mybox ~]$ ldd $(which mysql)|grep mysql
        libmysqlclient.so.15 => /usr/lib64/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.15
