In the docs directory of the tarball, there is a file named INSTALL, in this
file you will find the following information:
Problems may also be encountered if both the 32bit and 64bit libraries
are installed on the system, and configuring snort with MySQL support
may result in a different error:
checking for mysql... yes
checking for compress in -lz... yes
checking for dlsym in -ldl... no
checking for dlsym in -lc... no
ERROR! programmatic interface to dynamic link loader
not found. Cannot use dynamic plugin libraries.
<some other stuff>
This likely indicates a compability issue between a 32bit library
from mysql (found in its normal location), and a 64bit library for
libdl (dynamic loader). Use the --with-mysql-libraries option to
specify the location of the 64bit mysql library (e.g. /usr/lib64/mysql).
If that doesn't answer your question, a lot more information is required
about your installation, what version of snort, configure options, etc. etc.
