I'm having problems getting snort-mysql+flexresp-1.8.3-5.i386.rpm
installed.  I've searched google and followed the advice I've found, but
the problem continues.  Following is the problem:

# rpm -ivh snort-mysql+flexresp-1.8.3-5.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        libmysqlclient.so.10   is needed by

I've installed both MySQL-4.0.1-2.i386.rpm and
MySQL-client-4.0.1-2.i386.rpm.  libmysqlclient.so.10 exists on my system
as follows:

# locate libmysqlclient.so.10

I've set my LD_LIBRARY_PATH as follows:

# env | grep LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Also, I've edited /etc/ld.so.conf to include:

# cat /etc/ld.so.conf

And I've run /sbin/ldconfig.  Any thoughts on what I need to do in order
to get this RPM installed?
