MariaDB new installation on Centos 6


Hi everyone,

I'm new user of MariaDB, and I install it on Centos 6.8 64bit.
I install it using yum utility , according instruction on MariaDB site:

yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client finished without any problem.

I can use mysql client to connect to databases without any problems.

Then I try to compile some of my applications.
To find out what library to use and where include files are I use
mysql_config and mariadb_config.

mysql_config output:
[root@xms tests]# mysql_config
Usage: /usr/bin/mysql_config [OPTIONS]
        --cflags         [-I/usr/include/mysql ]
        --include        [-I/usr/include/mysql]
        --libs           [-L/usr/lib64  -lmariadb]
        --libs_r         [-L/usr/lib64  -lmariadb]
        --plugindir      [/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin]
        --socket         [/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock]
        --port           [0]
        --version        [10.2.6]
        --libmysqld-libs [-L/usr/lib64  -lmysqld -lpthread -lz -lm -lrt
-ldl -lssl -lcrypto -lcrypt -laio]
        --variable=VAR   VAR is one of:
                pkgincludedir [/usr/include/mysql]
                pkglibdir     [/usr/lib64]
                plugindir     [/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin]
[root@xms tests]#

And mariadb_config returns:

[root@xms tests]# mariadb_config
Copyright 2011-2015 MariaDB Corporation AB

Usage: mariadb_config [OPTIONS]
  --cflags        [-I/usr/include/mysql -I/usr/include/mysql/mysql]
  --include       [-I/usr/include/mysql -I/usr/include/mysql/mysql]
  --libs          [-L/usr/lib64/ -lmariadb -lpthread -ldl -lm -lssl
  --libs_r        [-L/usr/lib64/ -lmariadb -lpthread -ldl -lm -lssl
  --libs_sys      [-lpthread -ldl -lm -lssl -lcrypto]
  --version       [10.2.5]
  --socket        [/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock]
  --port          [3306]
  --plugindir     [/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin]
  --tlsinfo       [OpenSSL 1.0.1e]
[root@xms tests]#

First question is why these two outputs are different?

I wrote Makefile and use -I and -L like this in mysql_config.

gcc compiler finish with error that there is no mariadb library.

What I have missed?
Where is libmariadb located?

Best Regards, Romeo
