I loaded snort2.0.2 on a Linux 9 platform running mysql. Snort starts
with this error:


Starting Intrusion Database System: SNORT

/usr/local/bin/snort: error while loading shared libraries:
libmysqlclient.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or


however libmysqlclient.so.12 is located in /usr/local/mysql/lib
-rwxr-xr-x root root 159113 Oct 7 (date of server build)


mysql was compiled as ./configure -prefix=/usr/local/mysql

snort was compiles as ./configure -with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql


What can I do to fix this?


Thanks, Paul
